Freedom To Operate
How We Can Help?
Based on our own experience and the experience of our clients, we know that launching your protected innovative product or service can be a minefield on your route to market.
You need to ask yourself whether any existing IP rights that conflict with your patents, trademarks or designs, could hinder your ability to commercialise your product? This is known as Freedom to Operate.
