Intellectual Property

Intellectual Property
Capability Overview

Intellectual Property 

Intellectual property (IP) could be one of your organizations' most valuable assets. Yet, it is often poorly understood or protected.

Solutions for Managing Intellectual Property

Today, intangible assets — primarily in the form of intellectual property (IP) — comprise 90 percent of the value of the S&P 500, yet only a fraction of those intangible assets are protected.1

At Aon, we can help you make better decisions in assessing and quantifying the value of your intellectual property. By having a stronger understanding of the value of your IP assets, you can better align your IP strategy with your business strategy, more effectively manage IP risk and attract potential new sources of growth capital for your business.

Our team of nearly 200 IP professionals — one of the largest in the industry — brings the unique ability to analyze and value IP at speed and scale. By combining our extensive IP experience with advanced analytics, we help our clients be better informed and better advised to make better IP decisions that can enable them to identify, protect and realize the full potential value of their intellectual property assets.
