We provide strategic advisory services to Fortune 500 and leading IP companies.

Clients hire our team because of our deep understanding of the operations of the best-run corporate IP groups from around the world, including the US, Canada, Europe and Asia. 284 Partners works with clients to develop an IP strategy that aligns and supports their corporate objectives, such as:

  • Business development (IP-based M&A)
  • Monetization
  • Defensive purposes (acquisition of patents)
  • Tax strategies
  • Cross-licensing
  • Patent pool analysis

284 Partners’ strategic advisory services are closely related to our transaction services and often there is significant overlap between the two service-lines. By structuring engagements that freely flow between the two service lines, we provide our clients with the best value from a fee / risk-sharing perspective.
