Using a Data Room to Store Intellectual Property and Other Important Documents

17-09-2023 | Property Development

Traditionally, companies stored important documents in a safe area that buyers could access to conduct due diligence. These documents are now digitally stored in data rooms. Investors can view information such as your articles of association and your patents, as well as your intellectual property, and the legal structure of your company. This includes contracts, stock vesting and the cap-table (which lists who owns what).

It’s crucial to have the correct documentation ready in a timely fashion when you’re preparing an investor, sale or an acquisition. This helps speed the process and decreases the chance of missing an important element.

Virtual data rooms provide a secure environment for sharing and storing information related to IP and licensing. Security features like audit logs and permission settings along with watermarking and restrictions on printing/downloads prevent data leaks and data breaches.

Lawyers typically deal with large amounts of confidential documents in litigation cases. Virtual data rooms are a great option to manage this material because of their robust encryption techniques and sophisticated security controls. VDRs allow lawyers to work with clients and share documents while preserving confidentiality.

An investor data room should be set up when you begin making pitches to investors so they can view all of your relevant information during due diligence. This will ensure that they know what you’re offering and make an informed decision about whether or not they’d like to partner with you.
