Tip: A patent may be worth more to one company than to another company. Researching a potential company that may be interested in your patent and ordering the “Company-Specific Valuation Package” may increase the value of your patent as shown in our report as we can consider the additional value a specific company gains by buying your patent, based on their current market share and other company specific factors.

  Q & A about Patent Valuations


Q: How is the patent value determined?

A: A Patent Valuator & Analyst certified by the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts (NACVA) will value the patent using several factors including: the actual or potential sales of the product or service protected by the patent, the strength of the patent, and the size of the market for the product or service protected by the patent. If you have a target company who you want to sell the patent to, we will do additional analysis on the value gained if this specific company were to buy or license your patent.


Q: Can I get the value of a pending patent application not yet approved?

A: Yes, the value will be calculated based on the assumption that the patent be approved in the future.


Q: What do I get with a patent valuation?

A: A report containing the value of your patent as well as research and figures supporting the resulting patent value. All research and analysis are conducted by a team of professional patent valuators and analysts certified by the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts.


Q: Can I see a sample of the report I will receive?

A: Yes. please contact a consultant who can send you a sample patent valuation report.


Q: Why do I need a patent valuation?

A: To get an idea of what your patent is worth. If you are considering selling or licensing your patent to someone else or a company, how do you respond if they ask you what do you want for the patent? You don't want to say too high or too low. A patent valuation gives you a starting point of discussion with a prospective purchaser or licensee. It can also be used to strengthen the appeal of your patent. For example, you may tell a potential buyer that you are interested in selling a patent with a certain value to them. Furthermore, if you order a patent valuation that is considers a specific company (the company specific valuation), the valuation will state how the patent will further benefit the specific company and how much additional value the patent may bring to that company.
