Freedom to Operate

Freedom to Operate

Do not go gentle

Freedom to operate is knowing the risks associated with launching a new product, process or service.

Imagine if after 10 years of R+D, you have 50,000 widgets on a boat travelling from Shanghai to Dover only to receive a court order ordering their destruction.  The widgets could be a new medicament, a power circuit, an LED heat sink, in fact anything that could be covered by a third party intellectual property right such as a patent, registered design or trademark.

TLIP attorneys can work with your product development teams, commercial teams and in-house lawyers to search, find and review prior IP rights.  Identifying the risks with these prior IP rights enables you to put in place a plan for the various scenarios that may play out.  No one can ever guarantee freedom to operate, but TLIP can guarantee that you will be prepared.
