Patent infringement disputes can present costly obstacles whenever introducing a new product or entering a new business.  Visibility and avoidance of potential patent infringement problems are important keys to keeping your business running smoothly. 

Shumaker & Sieffert patent attorneys have extensive experience in counseling clients with respect to patent infringement risk. Whether addressing acute patent infringement risks with noninfringement and/or invalidity opinions, conferring with engineers to develop design-around options, or surveying a market segment to evaluate freedom-to-operate, our attorneys can help you reduce patent risk while pursuing business opportunities. 

Our patent attorneys also are poised to contribute to offensive patent infringement studies, including presuit investigations.  Building a substantive legal case of patent infringement for "hand-off' to trial counsel is another strength of the firm's patent attorneys.
