Metis Partners was set up in 2003 by founder and director, Stephen Robertson, and in the time since, we have grown to become an expert team of lawyers, accountants and technical specialists with over 50 years' experience in IP management, valuation and analysis, working from offices in Glasgow, London and Berkeley, California.

Maximising the financial recovery for creditors and ensuring compliance with statutory obligations is vital in corporate recovery situations and we have a proven track record of helping insolvency practitioners achieve both of these goals in dealing with IP assets. We assist both pre and post-insolvency, and our specialisms include supporting pre-pack negotiations and assisting with cases where there is buyer interest in an insolvent company's IP assets. To date, we have recovered £tens of millions for creditors from the sale of IP assets from insolvency and have provided IP valuation advice in hundreds of cases, making us the market leaders in the UK and Europe.

In corporate restructuring scenarios, where IP assets are typically undervalued, we work with lenders and their advisers to help them take new security over valuable IP assets (such as brands, patents, software and trade secrets). We also advise on how to leverage these critical IP assets in different corporate structures including SPVs and bankruptcy remote vehicles, helping to create some "breathing space" in a restructuring scenario.

If you would like to learn more about IP assets in insolvency, we have prepared a free IP Basics webinar for you - click here to watch it.
