Opinions

Your IP rights are valuable. Protect them.

Because conducting business in a cost-effective manner is important to you, assessing your intellectual property rights matters to us. At TraskBritt, opinion work is an integral part of proactive representation of our clients, securing and maintaining current commercial intelligence to limit potential liability and damages in litigation.

We provide a detailed assessment of where your company has the freedom to operate in terms of third party patents, trademarks, and other intellectual property rights. This assessment also identifies opportunities your company has to gain commercial advantage through acquisition and enforcement of these rights. As a result, your business may receive significant cost savings from new or expanded commercial opportunities as well as from avoiding unnecessary costs in the form of litigation expenses and diverted company resources.
