Docketing is vital across all stages of intellectual property and requires expert care and attention. However, that’s not always possible.  Skilled talent can be hard to find and upticks in filing volume can overextend your team’s capacity, creating filing backlogs, docketing errors and prosecution delays.

Our team of docketing professionals can easily become an extension of your team, or are available to support special projects on an as-needed basis            


Our partnership with Clarivate allows us to ensure that we have a docketing system that we can really rely upon.

Data validation

Implementing the right processes to safely manage IP assets and avoid errors is critical. Derwent’s data validation reviews on portfolio matters are conducted using publicly available information from local Patent and Trademark websites in conjunction with Derwent data review products. Our specialized teams look for gaps and discrepancies in clients data that impact on the integrity of your portfolio.


File intake support

Managing incoming files from multiple sources and checking the quality of clients’ data is our area of expertise. Our teams review incoming information, assessing field mapping and term definitions, along with a further review and confirmation of standard data generation or statutory dates.  We reconfirm clients’ data against the various systems we are docketing in to ensure that they align.
