A Generalized Approach To Clearance Doesn't Cut It, So We Dig Deeper

At Ensemble IP, we sweat the details, because details matter. We know the right databases and the best search techniques from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Whether it is German Utility Models or techniques to predict unpublished applications, we know where and how to search.
We know the patent claims matter and we know there are occasions to go beyond machine translations. For the situations when machine translations cannot provide the specifics you need, our native language searching capabilities provide you confidence that you have the right information to determine FTO clearance in any jurisdiction.
We know the common pitfalls in performing a comprehensive search, and the not so common ones.
