There are several types of legal opinions that can be obtained on issues related to patents. For example, before investing in filing a patent application, companies may wish to obtain a patentability opinion to ensure their ideas are new, useful, and non-obvious...in other words, patentable. Freedom to operate opinions may be requested when a company wants to ensure their offerings do not infringe upon intellectual property that does not belong to them. Validity opinions help companies determine if their intellectual property is valid and/or enforceable.
No matter the type of opinion needed, FSP can assist clients in obtaining the information they need to inform their decisions and determine their strategy.
