Freedom to Operate Reviews and Landscaping Exercises

We conduct or commission searches of third party patent rights, and then review and report on the relevance of third party patents and patent applications to a client’s commercial interests and intellectual property strategy.


We always recommend that a client tailor and scale such exercises so that they are proportionate to the business risks taken by a client. Exercises have ranged from a few hours’ work to full freedom-to-operate exercises (e.g. an FTO for a biologic in a phase III clinical trial) that took several hundred man-hours to perform.


Our reports provide pragmatic, commercially-aware recommendations which are backed by the legal privilege enjoyed by a Chartered and European Patent Attorney. We can also prepare a brief for securing an opinion from IP counsel if necessary. 

Unlike traditional intellectual property firms, who typically focus on the registration of intellectual property, Bioscience IP Limited concentrates on consultancy. We can therefore offer the ideal independent solution, and our wealth of experience in exercises at every scale can give you confidence in the quality of our advice and the precision of our reports.


We would be pleased to provide you with more details about our services. Contact us on +44 1625 263335 or use our contact form.
