Patent valuation is the determination of an economic value of patent rights. The sale of a patent or portfolio of patents, financial accounting, the securing of loans or the strategy for foreign applications can be the purpose of a patent valuation. Valuation opinions for patents are also required by companies in the context of so-called “due-diligence analyses”.
For this purpose, an expert prepares a written opinion (valuation opinion), in which the initial information, the method for the valuation and the result are specified as a monetary value. Patent attorneys, for example, who have the required legal and technical knowledge in the respective field, are experts for patent valuation. The legal, technical and economical factors periodically form the basis for a patent valuation.
