EMD Millipore - Reducing costs during two major acquisitions
Merging and consolidating IP portfolios after an acquisition is a major undertaking. When Merck acquired Millipore Corporation they selected Memotech as their enterprise standard for patent management. Then, in 2015, when Merck finalised its acquisition of Sigma-Aldrich, Memotech was once again selected as the combined enterprise standard. With support from CPA Global’s services, the newly formed Merck KGaA, Darmstadt Germany has aligned all their IP data in another smooth transition through a paralegal team, an extended team of patent researchers, and a prosecution team.
