TransactionsIP focuses on buying patents or patent portfolios for:
- Strategic and Enterprise Buyers
- Anonymous Buyers
- Financial Buyers (Equity and Capital Groups)
- Patent Aggregators
Strategic and Enterprise buyers are usually operating companies wanting to buy patents for defensive reasons (to protect a product or future product) or for offensive reasons (to use in a counter lawsuit against someone already suing them). Patent acquisitions can be large or small portfolios depending on the needs of the buyer.
At times the buyers wish to stay anonymous. If a seller knows the buyer is a large corporation with lots of cash they may inflate the price immediately. This puts the buyer at a disadvantage in pricing. Using TransactionsIP can limit or even eliminate the inflated pricing by the seller.
Financial Buyers buy for a variety of reasons tied to creating a return on their investment buys. TransactionsIP has established a network of contacts with these types of buyers.
Patent Aggregators are just that, they aggregate patents to create a portfolio they can enforce through litigation (offensive) or they buy to keep patents from being enforced (defensive). They often want to buy anonymously and use firms like TransactionsIP for this need.
In all buying situations TransactionsIP has completed deals with most of the acquisition entities above. TransactionsIP can anticipate and mitigate problems and speed bumps during the negotiations, and help to complete win-win deals for our clients.
