How can I strengthen my negotiating position?

Solid evidence of use is the key to deriving maximum value from asserting patents

Identify Your Strongest Patents for a Specific Negotiation

If your explicit goal is to maximize value by asserting patents, you'll need a rock solid case against a company and their products.

An effective assertion or counter assertion strategy - or any strategy for maximizing patent value - hinges on having in-depth knowledge of your portfolio and a detailed understanding of your target's product(s) and technology.

This critical knowledge and insight enables you to take the next step and identify which of your patents might be useful in a specific negotiation. Your assertion will only be effective if you can match your patents to products generating significant revenue. This is where Chipworks excels.

Depth and Breadth of Experience

A critical advantage that Chipworks brings in history and experience. Simply put, we have read thousands of patents, analyzed thousands of products, and are recognized experts at matching patents to products. We excel at finding evidence of use and generating high-quality claim charts that withstand the toughest negotiations.

Here are a few examples of how Chipworks helps IP professionals and litigation experts... and the results you can expect.

“The analysis provided by Chipworks exceeded our expectations. The company’s ability to strengthen our initial claim gave us the confidence to pursue a licensing program with an industry giant.”

Senior Manager, IP Department
 

“Chipworks was critical to our strategy, putting us in a strong position that led to successful licensing negotiations. At the end of the day, it’s about finding hits with our patents. That’s why I choose to work with Chipworks.”

Intellectual Property Counsel

“By supplementing standards based documentation with technical evidence of use, Chipworks helped us strengthen our negotiating position. In light of their responsiveness and ability to run parallel programs, they continue to support us in related licensing campaigns.”

Senior Licensing Executive

“Without Chipworks our case would have been much weaker. Chipworks provided credible third party analysis, which is what you need going into a litigation. Both my client and I were very pleased with the work.”

Senior Partner, Patent Litigation
 

“We don’t give Chipworks the easy stuff. We give them the work that we don’t have the capability to do internally. They helped us validate the potential of monetizing a group of systems patents that initially fell outside of our IP strategy. Now we see that we can derive licensing revenue outside of the semiconductor industry.”

Director IP Group


“Chipworks’ intimate familiarity with the semiconductor and microelectronics market helped define our options and move quickly from a negative cash flow to a multi-million dollar profit.”
