Better decisions at every stage of the innovation life cycle
Identify references that disclose the same, or similar, inventions with a thorough search of global patent publications and nonpatent literature. Determine if claims should be revised and make informed decisions on whether to proceed with a patent filing.
Compare key features of an invention to relevant prior art in global patent publications and non-patent literature. Evaluate the strength of the invention and determine if claims should be revised to improve patentability.
Defend patent infringement assertion claims with confidence with a comprehensive global prior art search. Assess a patent’s validity before responding to patent infringement assertions or to obtain bargaining power when entering into a licensing agreement. Strength-test your own patents before enforcement or when considering M&A due diligence.
Assess whether there are any active or pending patents that would prevent you from making, selling or importing your product or process in jurisdictions of interest. Evaluate infringement risk and make informed decisions regarding design changes and licensing to optimize product development.
Understand the current state of innovation and the pace at which it is evolving. Provides a summary of prior art and scientific literature in a particular technology sector or subcategory.
Get notified when competitors file a new patent application in any of 100+ jurisdictions. Track filings from application to grant. Receive an alert when a patent receives a new citation, is allowed to lapse or is included in a litigation.
Efficient preparation of biological sequence listing in standardized format, either ST.25 TXT or ST.26 XML. Our robust quality control and review ensures high quality, error free delivery.
Provides recommended amendments to a patent application or continuation to help ensure the key elements most likely to provide evidence of use are included. (Available for English language patent applications.)
