IP acquisition

 

eccora provides a discreet and anonymous IP acquisition service to secure trade marks, domain names or other Intellectual Property assets. Our network of trading companies can also be used on behalf of IP professionals as vehicles to use as IP applicants, or to oppose marks on the grounds on non-use.

As an alternative to opposition or cancellation proceedings or as a way to clear conflicts to a proposed trade mark and safeguard your new marketing, product or brand launch plans, we handle the entire process.

Our service includes providing a third-party facility for filing and registration, price negotiation for IP acquisitions and the final onward transfer of the IP assets.

Our end-to-end service

  • Discreet approach via one of our trading entities
  • Negotiate to secure the asset at the best possible price
  • Transfer of funds through secure payment
  • Completion of assignment documentation

How do we charge?

We charge a fixed-fee for the initial approach to the owner to determine if they are interested in selling and if so, at what price. If a potential sale is available we then negotiate through to an agreement and transfer. Once we have secured the asset, we invoice the remaining fee plus any external charges. Payment for the asset is usually required in advance once the agreement of sale is secured. Third-party trade mark filings are typically charged on a one-off fee basis.
