What We Do

Patent Landscape Analyses

A patent landscape analysis is an invaluable tool for any technology. It allows your business to strategically direct research and development toward the open spaces in the patent landscape, and steer clear of tracts that are already fenced-off by densely competing patent activity. Our attorneys have the breadth of legal, technical and industry experience to accurately survey the patent landscape and plot a course to relatively unsettled territories where your business is more likely to succeed in staking its claim to valuable intellectual property.

Sughrue provides a comprehensive analysis of patents, publications and intellectual property trends focused on the technology under consideration and we evaluate the risk profile for your business plan. Sughrue’s global reach allows us to monitor the patenting activities of your competitors worldwide, evaluate their patenting strategies, and assess the strengths and weaknesses of competing patent portfolios to ensure that your business is well-positioned in the global marketplace.

Our tried and tested patent landscape analyses can help reduce overall costs by identifying potential competing patent problems early, before substantial investment makes it difficult to change course, or before such problems arise through costly litigation or less favorable licensing arrangements.
