Critical Issues in Due Diligence and Freedom to Operate Analysis for University IP


By Jesse Schwartz
Published: September 8th, 2021

Intellectual property due diligence and freedom to operate (FTO) analyses can be critical to assessing potential licensing transactions and can be equally important for start-up investors. These analyses are also key factors in developing patent prosecution strategies for new disclosures.  However, due diligence and FTO analyses can often be sheathed in a cloud of mystery because of the broad scope of issues involved and the inherent variability in the information they uncover. In addition, the potential for spiraling costs from poorly devised or conducted inquiries can further confound the process.

Critical Issues in Due Diligence and Freedom to Operate Analysis for University IP, scheduled for September 22nd, is a practical and detailed webinar featuring patent attorney Jonathan B. Roses of Wolf, Greenfield & Sacks. He will demystify due diligence and FTO inquiries by explaining not only what they explore, but also how they are best conducted. 

Attendees can expect to gain an understanding of why and when these activities are required, what information they can yield, and how to distinguish issues that are critical to the analyses from those that are simply “nice to have” or even unnecessary for a given project.
