Menlo Park, CA (PRWEB) January 07, 2013
Firm co-founders Barry Carr and John Ferrell will be present at the event to discuss their unique approach to private intellectual property sales. The team refined its formal private auctions process over twenty years of experience in managing IP transactions in Silicon Valley. This year, the firm looks forward to introducing its sales service to the tens of thousands of inventors, entrepreneurs and executives attending CES.
“With so many technology innovators converging in Las Vegas for this event, we know our IP sales services will find a receptive audience at CES,” Mr. Ferrell said. “There is a real need in this industry for intellectual property experts with technical fluency, who understand the marketplace and the needs of the top buyers. This truly is the key to our record of success in the patent sales space.”
The intellectual property market is more competitive and lucrative than ever before. Securing the highest price for a patent requires not only identifying potential buyers, but also differentiating a portfolio from the thousands of available patents inundating the market each year. According to Mr. Carr, the extensive preparation of market summaries, technology analyses and due diligence materials that the Patent Sales Group prepares for each portfolio helps to facilitate strong valuations and smooth sales.
“As a law firm with very strong patent and corporate legal service offerings, Carr & Ferrell is uniquely positioned to provide both buyers and sellers with the expert analyses, information and legal insight that other brokerage firms cannot offer,” Mr. Carr said.
This week will mark the second consecutive year that Carr & Ferrell LLP has exhibited at CES. Mr. Ferrell, who attended last year’s conference, said that intellectual property protection and monetization are very much front-of-mind for the show’s attendees, and they are pleased to find a firm attending that understands their needs.
“Everyone at CES, from the independent inventor to the multi-national corporation, is creating valuable intellectual property. We are very excited to see those innovations, and also to share information about strategies for monetizing those assets.”
