ICAP Patent Brokerage Expands Blue-Chip Domain Brands Brokerage Services

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - July 13, 2016) - ICAP Patent Brokerage announces the expansion of its domain name focused line of business, which deals exclusively in premium blue-chip domain names and brands. ICAP Patent Brokerage's internal team of domain name, branding, and intellectual property experts will provide comprehensive brokerage and valuation services and analysis.

With over 10 years in the intellectual property brokering space, ICAP Patent Brokerage has successfully negotiated hundreds of millions of dollars' worth of intangible assets. With a first-class distribution network across dozens of industries, the brokerage is well-poised to offer high-touch service to buyers and sellers of valuable, brand-oriented domain names.

The initial inventory includes:

  • Autoloans.com (and associated trademark)
  • Patents.com (and associated trademark)
  • ElectronicBroking.com

Some of the portfolios will be available at auction, as part of ICAP Patent Brokerage's upcoming Fall 2016 Auction Catalog, commencing October 18, 2016. "Buy It Now" pricing will also be available to those wishing to secure purchase prior to the auction event.

"Through a variety of growth initiatives, we've established key relationships which allow us to offer expert services and high visibility to select digital real-estate," said Doug Rhoten, CEO of ICAP Patent Brokerage.

One such key relationship is a partnership between the brokerage and DomainAssets.com, lead by Managing Partner John Mauriello, who since 1997 has specialized in the acquisition and brokerage of top-level generic domains and digital assets, and helped start the first domain name aftermarket brokerage business on the internet.

"Sellers will appreciate the personalized service Doman Assets and ICAP have always provided clients, and will benefit heavily from the diverse buy-side coverage generated through our partnership," said Mauriello, whose portfolio of domain transactions includes high profile brands like Scores.com, Slots.com, Dating.com, Data.com, Social.com, KK.com, Answer.com, and IQ.com.

Mark Thoman, CEO of Riverwest brands and head of ICAP's Brand Brokerage, will also support the initiative, leveraging his 20+ years of experience in brand acquisition and IP sales. Thomann, whose iconic portfolio includes Cingular Wireless, Aiwa, Underalls, Eagle, and Coleco, is looking forward to this brand-centric focus. "Although we've brokered brands, domains, and trademarks in the past, we are devoting considerable additional resources to this process to ensure maximum exposure and value for our clients."

ICAP Patent Brokerage is actively reviewing domain name and brand submissions for inclusion in upcoming auctions.
