Global IP law firm Dennemeyer & Associates S.A. has been selected to be the “IP Due Diligence Law Firm of the Year in Germany” and it is listed in the Corporate INTL’s 2016 Global Awards Publication. This comes in recognition of on-going and outstanding performance in a field that leaves no room for failure. The ranking, based on an extensive research process, has been conducted by Corporate INTL.
"Intellectual Property is one of the most complex assets to evaluate in an M&A situation as most of it is an investment in the future. Therefore, IP due diligence is a highly specialized service that requires both legal and economic knowledge.", says Dr. Malte Köllner, head of Dennemeyer & Associates' office in Frankfurt. Dr. Robert Fichter, Director of the global IP law firm Dennemeyer & Associates, adds: "Receiving this award shows that we are successful in diversifying the range of our services and that we are increasingly recognized as leading provider of services at the interface of IP law, business and consulting."
IP due diligence is not a service that is only fit for M&A situations, but something that should be exercised regularly for a proper assessment of an IP portfolio. This allows companies to setup a realistic IP development plan, for a strategic approach to IP and a better exploitation of IP assets. It comes as a pre-requirement for the monetization of IP portfolios and can prevent companies from retiring IPRs that can still bring revenue.
