The areas of intellectual property include patents, trademarks, copy¬right, trade secrets and industrial designs. All forms of intellectual property have to be evaluated to mitigate the corporate risks in mergers and acquisitions (M & A). Due Diligence analysis is imperative for evaluating all aspects of a potential merger or acquisition. If a due diligence review is being conducted on behalf of the acquirer, the resource gathering procedure, including that relating to intellectual property, is a means of discovering as much as possible about the status of the acquiree. Intellectual property, especially patents, form the profits source in corporate transactions. This paper focuses on the patent due diligence in M & A and its mechanics and considerations.
