Freedom To Operate

The safe route to your destination

IP Strategy - Freedom To Operate

We provide you with searches and analyses in answer to the question whether third-party IP rights could potentially stop you from manufacturing or marketing a product, or from performing a service. Are warning letters or even infringement suits to be expected? In a given country, are protective rights in force that require special attention? Are there potential ways of circumventing IP rights? Based on in-depth knowledge of your IP aims, our experts will clarify the legal situation, evaluate their findings with you and put forward recommendations for further action.
