Growing your Portfolio

Growing your Portfolio

We can work with you to assist in acquiring IP which will add value and competitive advantage to your business. We can provide contractual wording to be inserted into all future agreements to ensure that all IP vests with you going forwards, as well as reviewing any existing collaboration, development and JV agreements to check where the IP will vest and advise accordingly.

Example:

JD Sports make no secret that they are on the look out to acquire brands that will add variety and difference to their stores’ already extensive offering. They identified the brand Sonneti as a possible candidate and we worked with them, worldwide, to find what the sellers owned, what they didn’t own but thought they did, and what they didn’t own, so that no more than the right price was paid and that any gaps could be plugged after the acquisition. JD would then have all the coverage, in all the classes and in all the countries that it wanted. We documented, negotiated and finalised both the commercial terms and the final set of legal agreements, so that following completion, JD truly achieved its goal.
