Our Mission

To build trust in Intellectual Property Valuation.

We deliver valuations that are robust, reliable and provide clients with a sophisticated IP narrative that demonstrates how their IP assets will drive business growth. We use our unique information discovery process, Metisology®, which is continually evolving to incorporate technology and innovation, emerging sectors, new business models, and changing market conditions.

Our Story


How It All Began

While working with the London Stock Exchange in the late 90s, Stephen Robertson, CEO and Founder, observed how analysts and investors often looked beyond the financial accounts and focused instead on the powerful brand, disruptive software or R&D that they believed provided a greater insight into a company’s future success. These were IP assets, and these assets were not just driving the revenues of public companies, they were underpinning the performance of many private businesses, large and small.

In 2003, Metis Partners was founded with the vision of helping all companies gain recognition for their IP assets that are critical to all businesses. Stephen began with a vision of helping business owners discover the valuable IP assets in their business, often hidden in plain sight. Now we are helping clients discover the value of their IP assets and our website continues this theme of discovery.

Our Coming of Age

18 years on we have built a team of IP experts, including accountants and lawyers, who specialize in appraising and valuing IP. Our role has changed from IP educators to trusted IP advisors. Our clients are now those with market-leading brands or active M&A strategies; developing disruptive IoT solutions or pivoting their business models and restructuring in changing markets. Our clients are exciting, dynamic and innovative and we are privileged to be capturing their IP story through our unique information discovery and valuation process.

Our Values

What is important to our clients is important to us. They rely on us because we are:

Trusted: The majority of our work comes from a referral and many of our clients are recurring. Our relationships are built on trust; therefore confidentiality and discretion are vital.
