Additional service: Patent family search

There are several reasons to perform a patent family search. In some cases it is important to ascertain if the patent is valid and if so, in which countries; particularly if you want to use an existing solution in a non-protected market. Family searches can be ordered separately, more detailed information can be found in the Patent family information leaflet.

Please bear in mind that a result from a search reflects the situation of today. However, the patent documentation increases with 10 000’s of newly published patent documents every week, a fact which of course could have an effect on your search result.
