Cardinal offers a full range of portfolio monetization products and services, from valuation of a single patent to valuation of an entire patent portfolio from assertion studies to overviews of your litigation risks. Our accurate and effective analysis and value assessment will help support your licensing, asset sale, or acquisition needs.
Cardinal can conduct assertion studies using either a targeted or a broad approach. In the targeted approach, we analyze the products and services documentation of your known competitors as they relate to your patent(s). In the broad approach, we expand the search to look for unknown competitors that are practicing the claims of your patent(s). Cardinal also performs market analysis to establish the current and projected future economic impact of the patented technologies. From this information a revenue opportunity assessment can be made for the potential licensing and litigation targets.
Cardinal has experience performing assertion studies on single patents as well as on portfolios of up to 10,000 patents. Additionally, we have helped our clients create marketing material, negotiate with third parties, and craft license and sales agreements.
