Venture Intellectual Property

Venture Intellectual Property

McHale | Slavin's venture intellectual property group has extensive experience in evaluating and analyzing intellectual property portfolios, and offers investors intellectual property due diligence to assist them in:

  • arriving at cogent assessments regarding the technology's freedom to operate;
  • determining the realistic strength and position of the technology in the marketplace; and
  • illuminating perceived risks involved with acquisition of rights to the technology.

Our counseling assists investors in minimizing risks involved with intellectual property investments, determining deal valuation, and identifying areas of the portfolio that require further development. Counseling further assists investors in determining invention topic generation, licensing and development and implementation of an Intellectual Property Portfolio.

We have experience in many aspects of municipal and industrial water treatment, power plants, turbine and engine design, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and chemistry.

Subsequent to investment, the group will collaborate with the investor's intellectual property counsel, or if desired, McHale | Slavin's patent preparation and prosecution team to improve the inventor's intellectual property position.
