Specialist in-house analysis

Obtaining and analysing search results can add value in a number of important ways.  An assessment of patentability can provide reassurance prior to committing to the patenting process.  Freedom to operate can be assessed prior to product development or launch.  Landscape searching can provide information on competitor activities.  Infringement searches can be used to assess and manage infringement risks.

  • Search results can guide R&D strategies, reduce development cycle times and identify areas of low patenting activity where commercial advantage may be realised.
  • Validity search results can provide essential leverage in licence negotiations.
  • Where appropriate, we can also provide bespoke training that equips clients with the monitoring techniques required to maintain awareness of competitor activities.
