AVOID INFRINGEMENT, CREATE BARRIERS
Intellectual Property Navigation Program
Are you free and clear to operate? In our IPN Program, we will help you identify and circumvent the critical IP that may present market roadblocks and costly litigation. Moreover our technical exploration often results in new IP that you can patent and use to protect your medtech innovation.

REDUCE RISK, BUILD BARRIERS
Impact to your business
Conflicting IP is one of the most significant risk factors you will face in medtech. Our IPN program helps you face this risk head-on by circumventing the critical IP and creating novel solutions that can result in valuable patents of your own. Reducing IP risk and bolstering your patent portfolio can be one of the fastest and most effective ways to build value in your company.
How it works
Our medtech experts follow a proven process that consistently delivers creative and comprehensive technical outputs to navigate the critical intellectual property concerns .
REVIEW IP CONFLICTS
We start by identifying and assessing the patents of concern, specifically around conflicting claim language.
Next, we brainstorm and illustrate technical solutions that eliminate one or more elements in conflicting claims.
Then, we down-select concepts and implement refinements to address size, cost, reliability, and other criteria.
We then present and discuss the refined concepts with your legal counsel to obtain an opinion of infringement and/or patentability.
KEY PROGRAM OUTPUTS
