Freedom to Operate Report (FTO)

Our firm is the leading firm in FTO reports in Brazil. In our FTO report, we provide the client with a legal opinion regarding the possibility of commercially exploring a new product in Brazil. The searches and the opinion are prepared by senior patent attorneys (technical people having both technical and law degrees and with more than 15 years of experience). The FTO report must be made and signed by a patent attorney in Brazil, if not, it is not considered a legal opinion. Depending on the circumstances, we may suggest the development of new products, differentiating the product from the blocking documents (patents and patent applications) uncovered in the prior art search (inventing around).

 Our FTO report provides detailed information on each relevant document uncovered in our searches, namely; abstract, filing particulars, key members of the patent family (US, EPO and WO), patentee, title and status of document at the Brazilian PTO.

Reports requested on demand by the pharmaceutical industry are customized and also contain information regarding the drug registration before the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa).

Litigation

Brazilian Justice is divided in two courts, namely: Federal Courts and State Courts. The Federal Courts have competence to judge all lawsuits involving government entities (such as the BPTO) while State Courts have competence to judge all lawsuits involving private companies or individuals.

Our experienced attorneys have both technical and legal backgrounds, being the best option in Brazil to defend and protect IP rights before the courts.
