Freedom to operate (FTO)

We help you identify and mitigate risk.

Our FTO analysis report helps you understand what patent infringement risks exist with the potential commercialization of a product or service. Analysis begins with a comprehensive FTO search, and then a review of each individual patent to determine whether the new product or service falls within the claims of any particular patent.

This will help you understand:

  • Where risks lie (e.g. in whose hands and in what technology area)
  • If a product or service infringes on any 3rd party prior to commercialization
  • If valid patents exist from whom licenses need to be obtained
  • How to navigate changes when a patent owner isn't interested in licensing
