Freedom to Operate (FTO)

Reduce the risk of patents complicating or even preventing commercialisation of your product and ensure your Freedom to Operate (FTO) with our analysis. 

Freedom to Operate analysis is a part of the risk management for your company, as it reduces risks of commercial operations.

The final price depends on the scope of the analysis.

This is how we work

1. Planning

We will go through the specifications of the product and analysis, such as geographical coverage and timeline of the analysis and potential competitors that may own patents. 

2. Search for patents and reporting

We will execute a patent database search for enforceable patents that may be relevant to the product. We will create a report listing such patents with a summary analysis of their merits. 

3. Selection of relevant patents for further analysis

We will analyse the scopes of protection of the selected patents and draft a claim chart for each patent. The claim chart describes in detail whether or not there's a risk for a patent infringement. The results are reported to you.

4. Invoicing and follow-up

The search may bring up pending patent applications that may, if granted, affect the freedom to operate. Prosecution of such patent applications can be monitored by us.

Freedom to Operate analysis provides facts to support decision-making. It can also be used in the R&D to develop the product so the risks for conflict are reduced. Detecting the potential risks beforehand also enables better preparation when the risks are realized.
