An intellectual property audit is a systematic analysis of an organization's IP assets that can undercover hidden risks, identify underutilized assets, and drive value enhancement. By understanding how to structure and execute a comprehensive IP audit, both in-house counsel and private practitioners can maximize client value from IP investments.

A panel of IP experts will explore the process of IP audits and how to audit different categories of IP, including patents, trademarks and copyrights. Panelists will then highlight and discuss how results of an IP audit can be used to your client's benefit to enhance IP asset acquisition, support M&A and licensing activity, guide enforcement opportunities, and help manage overall IP spend.
