We are equipped with the latest in-house tools for searching, allowing us to make searches quickly and in a cost-effective manner.

We may also use specialist-searching agencies for a fuller, wider search, and will guide you in selecting the right searching options for your situation.

We can search patent and other technical literature to investigate patentability of your or competitors’ inventions, perform freedom to operate searches for patents to assess your risk of infringing competitors’ rights with new products, or perform patent landscape searches to inform you of developments in your market sector. We can undertake strategic watching of patents to safeguard your rights, and implement watch strategies to keep you abreast of competitors’ developments and innovations.
