DP Partner John A. Squires Co-Authors Feature in the February 2021 Issue of Coller Venture Review

DP Partner John A. Squires co-authored, “The Curious Case of Patent Balance Sheet Invisibility” in the February 2021 issue of the internationally prestigious Coller Venture Review. In the knowledge economy where the value of IP far exceeds plant and equipment as a percentage of corporate assets, the lack of any standardized accounting treatment for patents is a growing impediment in transactions both domestically and internationally. Published as a companion piece to Nobel Economist Joseph Stiglitz’s article on patent pooling and the pandemic, the article lays bare the problem and proffers possible solutions and what they might mean.
