Patent Divestiture Services

Patent Divestiture Services

Companies often look to patent divestiture as source of revenue. The process for divestiture is complex and involves identifying patents of strength in the company’s patent portfolio, determining whether to proceed with divestiture, reaching out to potential buyers and negotiating the sale of the patents, and executing a sales agreement.

To assist our clients in this process, TechPats has established a patent sale/divestiture service which offers flexibility and is tailored to each client’s business goals. The patent sale/divestiture service complements our well-established patent acquisition support service.

In offering these services TechPats is able to facilitate deals between clients who desire to sell their patents and other clients who want to acquire patents. We work with partners, which include leading patent brokers and licensing firms, to provide complete patent transaction solutions to our clients.

Depending on the clients’ needs, TechPats can provide the following services for a patent sale:

  • Review of portfolios to identify patents of strength
  • Infringement detection and development of Evidence of Use documents
  • Market Analysis associated with the patented technologies
  • Valuation of the patent portfolio
  • Preparation of a Seller’s package
  • Outreach to potential buyers
  • Negotiating the sale of the portfolio
  • Facilitating the final transaction/sale agreement
