Cross-BorderBridging Between NationsTo Realize Opportunities Technology may transcend international borders with ease, but distance (geographic and cultural) impacts innovation strategy and commercial transactions deeply.

We conceived our Cross-Border Innovation practice for the express purpose of "bridging" that distance for our clients to create new commercial opportunities, and realize additional value from existing ones: especially "East-West" (e.g. US-China).

Enabling truly world-class results and realizing the most value from innovation & IP opportunities – which is always our first priority.

 

Practice Overview:    As a complement to our other practice areas, our Cross-Border Practice leverages our deep experience with Asian and European innovation markets to provide the best strategic innovation guidance and/or facilitate transactions and business creation across national borders (where increasingly the greatest value is created and realized... or lost).  So, why make the trip alone – let our deep native experience creating and closing opportunities overseas be your guide to realizing innovation & IP  advantage abroad.

Client Benefits:  Using our international expertise and relationships to bridge our clients to advantages across borders, including:

New & Expanded Markets:  Creating new markets, or expanding existing ones for your innovation & IP assets overseas.

Complementary Partnerships:  Leverage local presence and infrastructure e.g. sales/distribution or manufacturing – as a market segue, localization or cost advantage play.

Broader Patent/IP Protection:  Expand your IP protection overseas to facilitate entry or protect your markets from competitors.

Favorable Enforcement Jurisdictions:  Establish the best possible position for offensive or defensive enforcement in jurisdictions that impact your business – now and into the future.

New Investors & Funding Opportunities:  Expand the pool of potential investors to include those overseas with a greater appetite (or assets) for business investment in your innovation space.

Acquisition & Investment Opportunities:  Provide expert guidance in the identification and evaluation of acquisition/investment opportunities, as well as strategy for deal execution.

How We Engage:  Our Cross-Border Practice amplifies our other capabilities by adding an international dimension to the advantage we provide to our clients: through our strategy and transactional work.  Grounded in a deep first-hand understanding of Asian & European markets, we work with firms to bridge national borders by:

Identify & Evaluate Overseas Opportunities:  Help you identify, evaluate and consummate overseas opportunities for new business creation, investment/funding opportunities and opening new markets: buy-side and sell-side.

Innovation Strategy Dimension:  Optimize your innovation strategies (creation & commercialization) to take advantage of unique and complementary opportunities overseas.

Generate New Revenue:  Explore and exploit overseas monetization opportunities for your innovation & IP assets – adding revenue directly to your bottom line.

IP Protection & Enforcement:  Build or enhance your IP position overseas in markets and jurisdictions best suited for realizing your offensive or defensive business objectives.

 

Our Approach:  Our Cross-Border practice amplifies our other capabilities by adding an international "overlay" across national boundaries.  We leverage our deep international experience with innovation, intellectual property, partnerships and monetization overseas to guide our clients to greater innovation & IP advantage abroad.  We have particularly advantaged capability in "East-West" activities: bridging between Asia, the USA and Europe.  Enabling truly world-class results and realizing the most value from innovation & IP opportunities – which is always our first priority.

 

Experience:  Our principals have deep experience developing strategy and executing technology deals within North America, Asia and Europe, and equal experience doing deals between continents.  Where "deep experience" means living and working in these regions, for local companies years at a time, not parachuting in as momentary "deal tourists".  The strategic and transactional work done across these national borders includes licensing/assertion, M&A and new business creation for startups, multinational corporations and universities.  We're able to bridge between these nations so successfully through a broad network and years of experience: living, working and even teaching at the graduate school level (world-class law & business schools) in the USA, Asia and Europe.

By design, this Cross-Border Practice amplifies our other capabilities by adding an international "overlay" that bridges those capabilities across national boundaries enabling truly world-class results for our clients.  Complementing this Cross-Border capability, our Strategic Innovation Practice focuses on the strategic creation of high-value innovation/IP assets, and our Innovation Arbitrage™ Practice monetizes that value through our transactional capability.
