Techniques for valuing intellectual property continue to develop. The actual practice of valuing intellectual property has only been around for the past few decades. During that time, a few methodologies have become standard, but as with art forms, creativity in valuation has evolved, producing alternate valuation approaches.

This presentation will focus on:

  • Why IP valuation needs to be performed
  • When to use traditional valuation methodologies and when to use alternative methods
  • How the strategies used to monetize properties can affect values and valuations

Featured Presenters:

Weston Anson is the Co-Founder and Chairman of CONSOR Intellectual Asset Management, which has been a leader in Intellectual Property issues for over 25 years. Mr. Anson is active in all of the major international trademark and intellectual property associations as a speaker and an officer. He has also authored seven books on various aspects of intellectual property

Roy D’Souza is the Managing Director responsible for leading Ocean Tomo’s valuation practice. His work focuses on valuations of intangible, intellectual property, and tangible assets for acquisitions and divestitures, bankruptcy and restructuring, establishment of intellectual property monetization strategies, including licensing, mergers and joint venture/partnership formations, litigation support, and financial reporting and tax matters.

Note regarding CLE: LES is re-evaluating its policy and procedure as it relates to CLE credits with the intent of increasing what is offered and simplifying the process.  As that effort continues, LES will not be seeking CLE approval for this particular webinar course, but we will return to that practice shortly.
