Provides a holistic analysis of a technical sector, including where top players are focusing their patent filings, where patent activity is increasing or decreasing (by jurisdiction, assignee, inventor, or class code), which players are increasing or decreasing in momentum, and an analysis of patent density and potential white space. Analysis uses a standardized taxonomy, or we apply your taxonomy to provide meaningful, actionable insights.
Provides an analysis of one or more companies’ patent portfolios and compares the portfolios to your portfolio. Analysis includes an evaluation and comparison of patent strength by technology category, jurisdictional coverage, age of portfolio, filing trends, inventor activity and patent litigation activity.
On-going monitoring service alerts you when there are new patent filings, citations, or scientific articles published in your technical sector of interest. Scope is based on your specific objectives (type of activity, technical domains, jurisdictions, etc.) Monitor your competitors’ patent filings, detect new entrants, and see where new filings are focused by jurisdiction and subcategory.
Comprehensive, customized audit of your portfolio that considers your specific IP objectives and business goals. Evaluate your portfolio across a wide range of factors to allow you to make informed investment, maintenance and patent commercialization decisions to improve your patent portfolio ROI.
Identify companies that may benefit most from licensing your specific assets based on an analysis that includes company’s filing trends, recent research, litigation activity, product documentation and other non-patent data sources. Identify companies that may be potentially infringing your patents with claim element level evidence.
Determine which assets in your portfolio have the highest licensing or commercial sale potential based on age, influence, claim coverage, strength, related competitive products, and other factors.
Evaluate which patents are essential to specific standards, including 5G, WiFi, and HEVC. Identify SEP owners related to a specific standard and whether declared SEPs are actually standard essential with claim charts that clearly describe how patents align to the standard.
Identify and document how potentially infringing products or services are implementing your patented technology. Comprehensive claim charts summarize how products are infringing on your claims, with evidence gathered from patent literature and product literature including websites, manuals, and technical documents.
Our patent search team has access to 30+ patent and scientific literature databases, including 10 propriety sources such as Derwent Innovation, Innography, SequenceBase, DWPI, Web of Science, Proquest, and Darts-IP, and the ability to conduct physical searches of technical libraries from our 11+ global offices and extensive agent network.
