Dr. Emil Benatov & Partners is delighted to announce that we now offer Freedom to Operate searches and analyses in the field of patents. Before launching a new product in a particular territory, it is very important to make sure that you will not be infringing the existing rights of another party, as committing patent infringement can be extremely damaging to your business. A patent holder could stop you from making and selling your product in the relevant territory - this could render the investment into the product worthless and disrupt your business plan. In addition, you might be liable for significant damages and may also have to incur significant legal expenses. A Freedom to Operate (FTO) search is the best way to identify any potential issues in advance and minimise the risk of committing patent infringement. While it may not be possible to have a 100% guarantee of FTO, the more thorough the search, the more information and therefore certainty, you will have for your product. This applies equally for products which have not been patented, as well as for patented inventions - having your own patent does not remove the ability of other parties to sue you for infringement. Dr. Emil Benatov & Partners offers FTO searches and risk analysis in the fields of pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, cosmetics and chemistry for the territories of Europe and United States. Our team will will examine your business circumstances and offer you the particular service most suited to your needs. Let us help you obtain some certainty for your business decisions and give you the ability to more confidently proceed with your investments. Contact us for expert advice in the area of Patents.
