Intellectual Property Management and Licensing Systems
Intellectual property as the important asset of the digital age
In a knowledge-based society, intellectual property represents an essential part of a company’s value and is thus of paramount importance. In Germany, the share of intellectual property value in the total enterprise value already amounts to more than 50% and continually increases in the digital business. Against the background of its economic importance, we optimize the use of intellectual property and prepare our clients for the digital age.
Our team of highly specialized lawyers provides advice on the strategic use, the legal protection, the management and administration as well as the valuation and enforcement of intellectual property. Additionally, we advise our clients on all aspects of the German Unfair Competition Act (UWG) - from planning the market presence and providing advice on legal questions in the context of marketing concept to the defense and assertion of rights against competitors.
An essential focus area of our work is the making available and rollout of our IT-based IP Management, which we consider a strategic tool for a value-oriented management of your IP portfolio (e.g. copyrights, trademarks, patent rights and design rights) and cost-efficient optimization of your resources and processes (LegalTech). With this instrument, we do not only contribute to the security and success of your company, but also help to mitigate tax risks and other negative tax and business effects.
Moreover, we have many years of experience in setting up and expanding international licensing structures (licensing systems) for value-optimized exploitation of your IP assets. In cooperation with our colleagues from the tax and valuation department, we regularly identify hidden reserves or opportunities to obtain loss carryforwards.
Issues in the digital business are regularly at the interface of law and technology and require a multidisciplinary approach. Deloitte Legal combines expertise and experience in the areas of law, tax, business consulting and IT consulting with global resources to provide cross-border interdisciplinary counselling.
