OxFirst is pleased to host a free webinar, to take place on April 24th at 3:00 pm UK time, on the topic of “IP Valuation for Wealth Generation”, and why IP valuation can play a crucial role in every step necessary to generate wealth on the grounds of intellectual capital. The speaker will be the internationally noted IP expert, Dr. Guriqbal Jaiya. Dr. Jaiya will discuss various ways to value IP and will weigh the strengths and weaknesses of each method. As well, he will address how IP valuation can be leveraged in corporate finance, strategy, litigation, licensing and tax.
As readers of IP Finance are well aware, IP valuation is playing, or at least has the potential to play, a fundamental role in corporate strategy, helping maximize profits and attracting investments. The valuation of the portfolio of pending and granted patents, trademarks, trade secrets, copyrighted works and designs of a firm remains often the best guess of the firm’s value and its investment potential. As such, the valuation of IP can be crucial to realize the business potential of a company. Yet, despite this, IP valuation is still often underutilized.
