Freedom to Operate

Freedom to Operate Searching

Identify whether any patents held by third parties might block your operations

Our Freedom to Operate (FTO) searches inform assessments of whether your manufacturing, distribution, import and other operations could be blocked using patents owned by third parties.  Our FTO search and FTO analysis also informs litigation risk assessments, and whether you require licenses to patented technologies held by others.

When to order?

Freedom to Operate (FTO) searches are typically conducted prior to launching operations, such as manufacturing, sales, importing and exporting. FTO searching can also be called Infringement searching and Clearance searching.
