The consultancy that sold the intellectual property assets belonging to young fashion chains Internaçionale and Bank has launched a specialist IP brokerage to meet growing demand.
Metis Partners, which has offices in Glasgow, London and the US, has appointed Ruby Chan as junior analyst to harness the increasing number of approaches it is receiving to sell the IP assets of brands “in distressed scenarios”.
Chan will work alongside head of corporate recovery and brokerage Nat Baldwin, who has worked on a number of IP asset sales.
Baldwin said: “Metis Partners has established a global reputation for its expertise in helping companies, especially high-profile retail brands in recent years, to value and fully capitalise on their IP assets. This is the motivation behind the development and expansion of Metis Partners’ Brokerage services.”
Currently, Metis Partners is involved in sales including womenswear brand Miss Scarlett, swimwear and summer clothing label Ocean Bay and active apparel label TLX Sports.
