Impact Stories

Impact Story 1

We helped a leading Japanese automobile maker with Patent Clearance Search while they were planning to launch a product in new markets in South American and African countries. We visited them to understand the product and its features in details before initiating the project. Our team helped the client not only with a search report but also explained each of the potential threats (highlighted in the search) that were mapping with the product in detail. This exercise helped the company launch the product in a new market without any threat of infringement.

Impact Story 2

When a Japanese organization was facing language barriers in their patent searches, they reached out to us. Patent publications in China are in Chinese language and not in English. One needs to translate the language into English to understand the correct meaning. Since, the translation is not 100% reliable, the search was conducted by our Chinese native language search partner. The final report was created in English language with Chinese references.
