Freedom to Practice

Whether starting a new business or expanding an existing business into a new area, the unanticipated infringement of third party intellectual property can have devastating consequences. Accordingly, we perform analysis of specific industry or market segments, as well as the portfolios of existing or incipient competitors, to aid clients in determining their “freedom to practice” within those segments.

The firm is also experienced at analyzing and formulating strategies relating to patent licensing “consortiums” which may otherwise present significant roadblocks to new product introduction or market development.
