Product Clearance (Freedom To Operate)

Patent clearance, infringement search

Launching a new product with innovative features also carries some infringement risk. Depending upon your budget, it may be prudent to have a freedom to operate (FTO) analysis performed on your specific product(s). Also known as patent clearance, this review will assess the risk of patent infringement for a particular product.

Our detailed FTO analysis will include key patents and, if applicable, suggest potential ways to avoid infringing the claims.

If you're already aware of certain patents posing infringement concerns, we may be able to help you design around patents. While no FTO search can provide guarantees of safety or success, the peace of mind of knowing that infringement risks have been reduced or kept to a minimum may easily justify the cost of such a search.
