Metis Partners has been engaged by various types of clients, from banks and administrators to businesses and insolvency and turnaround professionals. This is what they say about us.
“We were recommended Metis Partners as we needed help in placing a value on our portfolio of IP, in particular a number of fundamental patents, which would form part of a legal dispute. The valuation team were able to respond quickly and grasp the key elements of the business to provide a reliable valuation, in a short and concise Desktop report”
Simon Ray , Director at Oilfield Mineral Solutions
Metis Partners have provided us with a detailed and robust IP valuation, which was needed to support an internal group re-organisation. Their team displayed great professionalism and ensured a smooth process to aid us with the transfer of our brand-related assets.
Harry Coleman, Director at Globe–Trotter
Metis Partners assisted our client in an IP litigation matter and in the process helped our client achieve a good settlement, higher than they expected. Metis Partners' IP Valuation team engaged in a very positive way and provided significant value to the process.
Mark Pearce, Partner at Bond Dickinson
Metis Partners provided us with valuable analysis and fresh insight into the intellectual property (‘IP’) assets Lux Assure owns. Their approach using easy to read IP asset maps helped us focus on the critical IP assets that underpin the competitive advantage of the business. They came up with some pragmatic recommendations to improve the IP, make it more robust and we continue to work them on other IP asset actions to improve our competitiveness and increasing our business valuation in the longer term.
Emma Perfect, Chief Technical Officer at LUX Assure Limited
It was important for us to understand from the onset what IP vested in the target, how well it was identified and secured, and any risks which could ultimately compromise the target’s value post-buyout. Metis Partners’ IP Due Diligence helped us identify and map out the IP owned and relied upon by the target, associated risks, and provided us with a schedule of actions to mitigate IP risks going forward.
Matt Anstead, Energy Ventures
Metis Partners provide Clydesdale Growth Finance with valuable analysis and insight into the intellectual property (‘IP’) assets of target companies. Their approach focuses on identifying the critical IP assets, assessing their quality, and how they provide a linkage to revenues and hence business value.
Graeme Sands, Head of Growth Finance at Clydesdale Bank
We were provided with a comprehensive report with detailed descriptions of the areas where we were strong and those that needed attention. The recommendations in the assessment will be implemented in a staged programme. We will work again with Metis on some of these actions.
Janet Halliday, Associate Vice President at Ferring Pharmaceuticals
Working with Metis Partners gave us a starting point on IP valuation and a roadmap for the way forward to add value to our business by concentrating on key IP asset areas. The discussions were open and honest, and we are now looking at ways to use Metis as our company develops.
Sandy Allan, Chief Executive at SHIL
Metis Partners’ ensured the recoveries were maximised.
Colin Dempster, Restructuring Partner at EY
Metis Partners dealt with the International Patent Applications to ensure that title to the intellectual property was preserved. Then they identified a buyer of all the intangible assets, entering into the negotiations to result in a successful sale at full market value. Their involvement was very gratefully appreciated.
Matt Henderson, Business Recovery and Insolvency Partner at Johnson Carmichael
Metis Partners, whilst acting for me in a recent technology based insolvency case, consistently thought outside the box in coming up with novel approaches to monetising IP.
Finbarr O'Connell, Partner at Smith & Williamson LLP
Metis Partners’ identification, evaluation and subsequent involvement in the disposal of the intangible assets were invaluable and of considerable assistance to us.
Ken Pattullo, Partner at Begbies Traynor
Metis Partners provide a professional and friendly service which has allowed us to maximise realisations in a number of insolvency situations. They provide services and advice to protect IP assets and maximise their value in subsequent sales, and they have achieved some great results to date.
