A: An experienced patent lawyer like myself should be able to conduct a patent search and provide a "freedom to operate" opinion on your products. Without more detail about your product, however, I cannot answer this question.

A: You will need to provide a patent attorney you trust with a detailed description of your jugs, including drawings. The patent attorney will then perform a freedom to operate search and analysis to determine if there is a risk of infringement and, if so, how to design around to avoid the risk.
