A flexible, commensurate approach to IP portfolio analysis for investors

VCs & other investors

We are a top European IP firm with extensive experience in providing analysis for clients who want to understand the IP position of a potential target, investment opportunity or partner.

Our expert team of patent, trade mark and design attorneys are supported by an in-house legal services team. We cover every aspect of IP management and have an excellent reputation for due diligence.

A flexible approach to fit your needs

We understand the importance of adopting a flexible approach. We will work closely with you to provide clear advice, appropriate for its purpose, and consistent with the time and resources available.

We are happy to carry out a full-blown IP due diligence, including: careful assessment of granted or pending patents or trade marks, prior art or freedom to operate searching, and targeted questioning of the company or their attorneys on key IP issues. Work with us and you can feel confident in the real strength of a company’s IP portfolio. Even in cases where full due diligence is not appropriate we can provide a succinct analysis of key IP issues.

A succinct analysis of key IP issues

Our extensive experience in advising, obtaining and challenging IP rights for our clients means we are uniquely placed to provide a useful and relevant opinion on a company’s IP position even without a lengthy or detailed analysis. VCs and other investors we have worked with have particularly appreciated this service.

So, whether you are seeking a quick and focused assessment of the most critical IP issues, or are looking for full due diligence on a company’s IP portfolio, you can be confident Mewburn Ellis will deliver the answers you need.
