Patent Ranking & Evaluation. Proven ICT domain expertise coupled with AI-enabled analysis. Extract hidden gems from your portfolio unearthing new licensing opportunities.Patent Portfolio Analysis
Some of the use-case scenarios for our portfolio analysis reports are:
Identification and ranking of the most valuable patents in the portfolio based on significance of the underlying technology and market potential. Determination of the cumulative worth of a portfolio based on opportunities for monetization via licensing/litigation routes. Mining a set of patents from a portfolio based on its relevance to a target technology/competitor’s product line.
We screen your patent portfolio against target products from companies across all domains. In the past, we have worked on portfolio screening projects related to domains such as Big Data, IA, Cloud, Database, Virtualization, computer networking as well as emerging technologies including virtual and augmented reality, Internet-of-Things (IoT) etc. Our targeted focus on the project requirements has enabled clients to make strategic decisions on litigation and/or licensing, helping them secure favorable verdicts in high-stakes patent litigations or striking lucrative licensing deals.
We focus on qualitative and quantitative parameters to identify the most valuable patents, assess monetization opportunities and make informed decisions about the monetization potential, and support licensing programs to achieve optimal client rewards.
A set of potential high-value patents is extracted using our proprietary patent-ranking algorithm. Detailed analysis of the shortlisted patents is then conducted by our technology specialists to identify the most valuable (diamond) patents. A plethora of parameters is used in this analysis, including market applicability, infringement detectability, enforceability and validity. Every patent is ranked on a rating scale (with specific criteria based on the requirements of the project) and a rationale behind the assignment of a particular rating is provided for clarity and ease of understanding. A final recommendation is then provided along with a cumulative score for effective sorting of the patents.
To summarize, you’ll get a clear and concise analysis highlighting the strengths and market potential of the patent portfolio, and customized reports as per your specific requirements and objectives.
In today’s competitive landscape, building strong IP assets is essential to stay ahead of your competitors and is integral to the overall growth strategy of the company. Aligning the patent portfolio with a company’s business objectives helps in maximizing the value of the innovations and in generating returns on the R&D investment. A process of continual filing without active portfolio management can result in your patent budget spiralling out of control. This is where active management and monitoring of your patent portfolio becomes necessary.

We help in accurately determining the true worth of a patent portfolio by providing actionable insights and recommendations on the commercial potential after conducting thorough due diligence. We specialize in both buy-side and sell-side due diligence.
Buy-side Due Diligence If you are looking at acquiring a patent portfolio, we’ll estimate the value of the patents based on technology assessment and its commercial use. We’ll also provide an in-depth evaluation of the strength of the portfolio and analyse how acquiring the portfolio may strengthen your R&D strategy based on close alignment of the combined portfolio with your product pipeline.
Sell-side Due Diligence If you’re interested in maximizing the return on your IP or if you are looking to reduce maintenance costs while maintaining the core strengths of your portfolio, we will help you conduct a thorough due diligence of your current portfolio and provide recommendations on out-licensing/patent assertion and divestment strategy through customized reports.
