Check that the commercial road ahead is clear
If your company designs and develops innovative products then you will be only too aware of the pressures on commercial R&D to get new products to market with only limited resources.
The process of implementing even straightforward improvements on existing products can demand significant investments of time and money.
The simple fact is that all companies face similar pressures to achieve commercial returns from their R&D investments.
It is all the more important then that the developments that are successfully launched on the market do not face a potential product recall due to infringement of third party IP rights.
A product recall can be extremely expensive. An infringement lawsuit can be devastating, particularly for an SME. Some IP rights holders have been known to wait a time before filing for infringement so that the defendant also faces a large damages claim.
White Light Consulting has the skills to engage with your engineering team during the development process and survey the IP landscape to ensure that the commercialisation road ahead is clear of all discoverable obstructions.
If a potential obstruction is discovered early enough during the development process then White Light Consulting can guide the engineering team on an appropriate technical course around the obstacle and/or take steps to remove the offending item.
