Innovation ArbitrageRealizing Maximum Returns From Innovation & IP Assets Our Innovation Arbitrage™ transactional practice realizes maximum returns from innovation and IP assets: adding new revenue directly to your bottom line through monetization, or creating competitive advantage through acquisitions.

Fine-tuned to capture innovation value, these transactions (buy-side & sell-side) include: licensing/assignment, M&A, new business creation or SPVs for assets ranging from IP portfolios, to product lines to entire operating companies.

Realizing optimal innovation & IP advantage – taking you from innovation assets to innovation returns.

 

Practice Overview:  Innovation Arbitrage™ is our transactional practice (buy-side & sell-side).  We identify innovation or IP assets that capture an advantaged commercial position, identify (or create) the best market opportunity, and then monetize the assets – often in novel ways, creating new opportunities and unleashing additional value/revenue.

 

The innovation assets we typically transact range from IP portfolios, to product lines, to entire operating companies: established or start-ups.  Depending upon our client's objectives, realizing optimal value might involve transactional (e.g. license/assign) work, partnerships, novel business models or new business creation.
