While patent clearance analysis proves challenging across industries, it is particularly vexing for manufacturers. International manufacturing facilities, global supply chains, questions regarding intermediate products, and long development cycles combine to complicate manufacturers’ freedom-to-operate determinations. 

In this webinar, we provide strategies and practical tips for those seeking to streamline the patent clearance process. In particular, we will discuss: 

  • Integrating patent clearance into the product design process 
  • The benefits of analyzing the patent landscape 
  • Strategies for determining whether to seek an opinion of counsel 
  • How post-grant validity challenges impact patent clearance
