ClearstoneIP, Inc., and MaxVal Group, Inc., today announced a partnership to strengthen and expand MaxVal’s IP search capabilities by offering a streamlined solution for managing the FTO assessment process.
Leveraging access to the broadest set of patent search platforms, MaxVal’s team of analysts prepare in-depth search reports for its customers. The references from those reports can now be easily added directly into the customer’s workflow in the Clearstone FTO platform.
The Clearstone FTO platform streamlines the FTO assessment process, enabling companies and law firms to facilitate collaboration between analysts, in-house counsel, and their clients. The Clearstone FTO platform provides interactive visualizations and intuitive workflows, enabling users to more efficiently review references, evaluate FTO, and deliver opinions, all while building a dynamic institutional knowledge base of patent analysis.
According to Stuart Recher, President, Services at MaxVal, “Our search services have long provided valuable insights to some of the world’s most innovative companies and law firms on patents of interest to them. And with this new partnership, we’ll be able to provide even greater value as we broaden our offerings to include FTO process management, including the ability for MaxVal analysts to import references for confidential review by attorneys.”
Gabe Sukman, CEO of ClearstoneIP added, “With their commitment to technology, service, and security, MaxVal is truly leading the industry. By partnering with them, we look forward to expanding our reach and elevating expectations of what is possible in patent risk management industry-wide.”
