Freedom to Operate

Are you about to launch a new product to a new market? Freedom to operate assesses the possibilities to use a technology commercially. Are you certain that your product does not infringe the intellectual property rights of others – possibly in another country or region?

FTO analysis: Establish if you have the freedom to operate

A freedom to operate analysis starts with a search for patents and pending patent applications drawn up to embrace the technology on which you would like to confirm your freedom to operate. Thus, a freedom to operate search produces a list of potentially pertinent rights.

Our freedom to operate report may give clear indications as to whether you infringe one or more patents – or not. Additionally, we may give recommendations as to how you may “design around”, or oppose the validity of, any rights considered to pose threats to your technology.

Contact us! Our experts will help you perform a freedom to operate analysis and interpret the results.
