Australian & New Zealand Freedom to Operate Searches

Many products and processes are protected by patents.  In order to ensure that your product or process does not infringe the rights of another from use of the product or process, a freedom to operate (FTO) search should be carried out.  A freedom to operate search generally identifies potential patent barriers by examining the claims of granted or pending patents. 

We have access to a wide variety of databases and conduct classification searches together with keyword searches of full text patents.

At KingSearch, our freedom to operate search report lists relevant patent disclosures which you may risk infringing with the product that you intend to take to market, or the process that you want to use.

Fees for a freedom to operate search are estimated on a case by case basis.  At KingSearch, we are happy to provide an obligation free quote.
