Laudea Research GmbH

IP research for chemistry, biotechnology and life science


Laudea Research provides patent and literature searches up to highest industry standard.


Effective communication is paramount. Your needs and project specification will be thoroughly analyzed and discussed upfront. At L|R Every project is handled with exceptional attention.


No two inventions are the same. Therefore bespoke search strategy will be developed and applied. The scope, the search and the budget and time constraints will be tailored to meet your expectations.

Freedom to Operate

Freedom to Operate (FTO) search will support you in making strategic decisions to make, sell or use a product. This search may help you avoid litigation costs that may occur due to unintentional infringement or violation of third party intellectual property rights within a particular jurisdiction. It will support you in making strategic decisions including entering a specific market, licensing, mergers or acquisitions.

We have a full understanding that in-force claims may be very broad and may not include all features of the proposed product or invention. We have mastered creating search strategies that consider product features as well as the claim breadth of possibly relevant patent documents.


Our patentability (novelty) search will help you to determine if your potential invention is novel and non-obvious. The results of the search have potential to strengthen your patent application and anticipate the examiner’s prior art rejections. The search can also uncover prior art that may stop you from pursuing your patent applications.


Litigation can be a very prolonged and expensive process. We will provide you with a thorough patent (in)validity search which will support you in devising adequate legal strategy.

It may be used to test the strength of your patent and give you a better negotiating position in case of licensing or selling a patent. Invalidating a patent will also be your strongest weapon in case of allegations of patent infringement.

Our search strategies for invalidity searches will scrutinize the target claims and their most important subject features. The search will encompass searching for prior art within patents, patent applications, non-patent literature like scientific papers, conference posters or clinical trials.
