IP due diligence & transaction support.

Lawrie checks the details, flags the risks, proposes solutions and provides the real picture.

We ensure IP issues are properly identified and risks mitigated.

Intellectual property due diligence - you need an expert to check the detail!

The making or breaking of business transactions can often hinge on the IP involved. Getting a ‘heads up’ on a potential IP issue as early as possible can significantly alter the course of the deal, and can ensure that action is taken to address any problems. Furthermore, obtaining a detailed picture of the IP allows its real value to be understood.

Lawrie takes a fresh and unique approach to due diligence. We work with you to understand what it is about the IP that is really important to you and your client, and focus on providing you with the actual information that you need to make or break the deal. And we won’t just present you with problems. We will explain in clear terms what the consequences of any issues are, and how to mitigate them.

You need to understand the value of the IP and identify potential issues as early as possible.

At Lawrie, we make sure we deliver:

Direction

Thorough IP due diligence with solutions to problems.

Peace of mind

Clarity

Commercial advice provided & costs clearly outlined.

Easy to understand

Control

Knowledge and guidance carefully provided on time.

Easy to take action

Failing to fully understand the content and value of an IP portfolio at an early stage can often result in delays and additional cost, and even the collapse of the deal.

Different deals require different due diligence. Running the same due diligence check every time can often fail to pull out aspects of the IP that might influence the deal.

We know that IP is an often unfamiliar area of law and the issues can be complicated. But we also know that – when you engage the right specialists – it can completely transform the success of a corporate transaction.

At Lawrie we understand that IP due diligence is integral to many corporate transactions. Information on IP assets is important for both buyers and sellers; it influences the valuation and informs negotiations.

The nuances of intellectual property can often have a dramatic effect on its function and value. It is therefore important that IP due diligence is undertaken by a reliable team with the experience required to match the IP to the commercial proposition. At Lawrie, we provide the expert guidance and steadfast service you need. Our mission is to be the easiest intellectual property team to work with and to make IP a pain-free experience, enabling you and your client to easily and quickly use the results of IP due diligence to make decisions and take actions.
