TGS Global Intangibles: strategy and advisory services

Business advisory Consulting

TGS firms learn how to offer specialty services to their clients that generate cash benefit, potentially in the tens of millions.

Michael Bredahl has over 25 years delivering value-focused insight and solutions to stakeholders and clients across the globe while in PwC and Deloitte Corporate Finance Consulting and industry at Cargill. He is an expert in Global Intangibles Strategy and Services and will host a roundtable on May 12. You will get to know how to move from compliance to high-margin premium advisory services.

What are Global Intangibles?

Global Intangibles are your clients’ most valuable assets. They can be patents, trademarks, copyrights or trade secrets. All these enable companies to produce and protect their differentiated products. This uniqueness is what brings a competitive advantage to the firms. It is thus important to invest to build the most valuable perception of the brand.

However, your clients might be mismanaging or simply forgetting about this source of sustainable advantage. Your firm can help them manage their Global Intangibles and give strategy advice to leverage value from existing collateral.

The services focus on identifying valuable intangibles, transacting for greater intangible value and new cash flows, driving cash tax savings, repatriation of cash and decreasing tax risks.

This new shared service is an opportunity for TGS firms to offer specialty services to their clients that generate cash benefit, potentially in the tens of millions.
