We combine our understanding of how to run a successful disposition engagement with our network of technical professionals, who provide research, packaging, and marketing expertise to support the processes we run for all classes of intangible assets, including:

  • Trademarks and Trade Names
  • Service Marks
  • Social Media Assets
  • Lease Streams
  • Patents
  • Proprietary Software
  • Copyrights
  • Customer Data
  • Customer Contracts
  • Favorable Supplier Contracts
  • IPv4 Addresses
  • Litigation Claims

Hilco Streambank creatively markets each opportunity to our substantial network of contacts around the world, tapping into a marketplace of buyers and sellers that can quickly deliver maximum value on the intellectual property. Our international capabilities span all market sectors, which enable us to identify and captivate interest from strategic and financial players, creating a more competitive sale process and realizing higher values. We are regularly called upon to manage large dispositions, and do so with speed, efficiency and professionalism.

We customize each of our disposition deals based on the circumstances, which includes analyzing the nature of the assets, the competitive landscape, and the circumstances under which they have come to market, including whether or not the sale is in the distressed context. Our compensation structures are also customized, and are often back-loaded and incentive-compatible structures
