Risk Management - Patents
We provide patent watches in respect of particular competitors’ patents, or any patents that relate to your field of technology, which will enable you to keep abreast of activity in your sector and identify any potential infringement risks at the earliest stage. These patent watches can be tailored to your needs, but typically take the form of regular electronic search reports providing details of the patents identified, and links to more information.
We also search more specifically for patents that may be relevant to your proposed new product or process, and are able to provide patent searches that range from initial toe-in-the-water searches, through keyword and classification searches, to comprehensive freedom to operate searches that involve stepping through all of the patents in particular technology classifications.
We provide advice regarding your freedom to operate, including advice regarding the risk of infringing any patents identified as being potentially relevant to your proposed new product or process. This advice always takes account of the commercial risk, as well as the legal risk, and will also include a consideration of potential modifications to your proposed new product that would reduce the risk of infringement, if necessary.
Our advice in relation to potential infringements of your intellectual property rights also enables you to enforce your rights before your business suffers too much damage, and therefore manage the risk of having to undertake expensive court action.
We pride ourselves in our commercial approach to the management of risk and enforcement of your rights, understanding that the needs of your business are primary.
