Beck & Thomas Due Diligence Services
Our firm's intellectual property attorneys start the due diligence process by identifying all of the patents, copyrights and trademarks that will be part of a transaction. After identifying the intellectual property, our lawyers then go through a detailed investigation of the ownership rights to determine if there are any issues with the chain of title. As part of the process we make sure that the intellectual property has been properly maintained and evaluate any license agreements that are involved. This process is often critical to achieving a successful deal.
