IP Counseling


Practice Areas

Osha Liang provides strategic IP counseling to help position our clients to maximize the capture, protection, maintenance, and enforcement of their intellectual property. We view strategic counseling as one of the highest “value add” services we can provide, as we are able to leverage our experience across many industries, jurisdictions, and company profiles to provide effective, business-oriented advice. Whether it be through extracting greater value from an existing IP portfolio, streamlining an IP pipeline, increasing cost efficiency of prosecution operations, or managing risks when entering a new product or business area, Osha Liang can provide effective advice to help ensure business objectives are met.

Our team has extensive experience in a variety of industries, including computers, software, wireless communications, oil and gas, life sciences, pharmaceuticals, food and agriculture, consumer products, aerospace, financial, software, and manufacturing. This experience across a range of industries allows us to offer valuable and unique insight into intellectual property counseling matters.

We advise our clients with the following:

  • Due Diligence
  • Establishing and Policing IP Policies
  • IP Audits and Portfolio Development
  • IP Monetization
  • IP Valuation and Portfolio Optimization
  • Legal Opinions (Infringement, Validity, and Enforceability)
  • Licensing
  • Patent Mining and Mapping
  • Prioritizing IP Budgets

In cooperation with Osha Liang’s IP Valuation Team, led by a CPA and Certified Patent Valuation Specialist, our attorneys help companies and investors evaluate the value and strength of IP assets.  We often work in cooperation with M&A counsel to evaluate assets and reduce risks, and use our technical experts to identify potential assets for acquisition.  The firm also provides IP brokerage services on a pay-for-success basis through its wholly-owned brokerage subsidiary company.
