Freedom to Operate (FTO) 

For innovative companies that want to develop and market new products, being blocked by a competitor's patents is one of the biggest risks. This applies in particular to areas in which a young company or start-up is competing with established companies.

To reduce such risks, it makes sense to conduct an FTO analysis at an early stage of development to avoid infringing on the intellectual property rights of third parties when manufacturing, marketing and using a new product, process or service.

At Zellentin & Partner, we help you to minimize the risk of patent, trademark or design infringement.
