Freedom to operate and patent landscaping

Going from that first ‘light bulb moment’ to launching your new product or technology is an exciting journey. But discovering someone else already owns the patent can be frustrating. With Freedom to Operate (FTO) and patent landscaping searches, you can see exactly what’s on the horizon.

Freedom to Operate searches

After getting to know the territories you’re entering and the competitors you’ll be up against, we run comprehensive, strategic FTO searches. Using the correct parameters and careful analysis, they show whether your path to market and the rights you need are clear.

Patent landscaping

Patent landscaping involves going through existing intellectual property with a fine-toothed comb. It’s a good idea to talk to us about this early on, when developing your idea. That way, you minimise the risk of infringing others’ rights. And if you need to license or acquire rights, we can weigh up your options.
