Freedom to Operate Searches
Be On Top Of All Potentially Threatening Patents To Cover Every Possible IP Roadblock and Confidently Place Product Into The Market
Why Boolean IP Consulting For FTO Searches
Highly Comprehensive Reports
We cover patents from 110+ jurisdictions in 16+ languages in multiple technology areas using industry's best databases. Our reports include mapping of relevant claims from identified patents, published applications or utility models against each product feature along with comments by experts. Legal status information is provided from national patent registers.
In-Depth Product Review
While reviewing the product for FTO, we break down the product into multiple elements and their combinations. Tangible products are broken down into individual components and methods are broken down into individual steps. The study is done for each individual element.
Our design patent searches are conducted using a combination of Investigative Thorough Search by Technology Experts as well as Search by Machine Learned/AI powered Tools to keep the coverage maximum and minimize the possibility of missing out relevant documents.
We do not conduct Only Machine Learned/AI based searches, and we only use these tools to supplement the searches conducted by our technology experts.
Flexible and Personalized Solutions
Whether it comes to our solution reports, project timelines, time zone difference calls or costing modules; we provide services suitable for everyone’s personal taste and needs. Wherever needed, we adopt an agile model of engagement to keep you satisfied, always.
Because You Need It On Time, Every Time
Far-reaching effects of IP decisions make it essential that you not only get the research you want at time of your choice but you also get it every time. It is our mission to deliver Dependable, Intelligent and Personalized Research On-time, Every Time!
Essential Ingredients Of Our FTO Searches
Understanding of Law from Different Countries
Law interpretation can be different for similar patent claims in different countries. We refer to patent law of each country for a sound claim interpretation. Also, we focus on keeping the claim scope broadest for any infringement possibility. The claim construction is considered to be broadest possible as well while keeping the prosecution history in mind.
Doctrine of Equivalents Consideration
According to DOE, a patent claim may be found to infringe if there is "equivalence" between the elements of the accused product or process and the claimed elements of the patented invention, even if that does not literally infringe upon the express terms of patent claims.
Broadest and Latest Claims Consideration
We design our strategies to capture patents, published applications and utility models with broadest possible claims and consider the ones with latest claim set. We rely on national patent registers for latest claim sets.
Legal Status & Potential Infringement Identification
We provide latest and accurate legal status from national patent registers. We also provide expert comments on restrictions in claims that may result in an infringement, if the product is further developed in a way as mentioned in claim restrictions. This avoids any possibility of infringement in future.
We follow an agile model of communication i.e. keep you updated with the search findings throughout the project cycle and when you are busy we set the right expectations from search initiation to avoid any surprises in outcome and trim the interim connections.
Iteration and Improvisation
Our strategy keeps improving with the duration of project cycle. Our strategies include both structured & unstructured searches - quick searches, followed by structured searches, assignee, inventor, & citation searches. Also, we are open for unlimited iterations till you are completely satisfied.
