STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
We put our highly skilled and internally trained team of more than 250 experienced analysts at your service. This includes attorneys, patent agents, and former patent examiners, as well as former practising engineers and scientists.
We combine the art and science of searching to maximise value for clients, based on decades of experience in formulating search strategies. By creatively harnessing the power of multiple search engines, databases and libraries we can deliver tailored results that meet your requirements. We have particular expertise in leveraging non-traditional sources of technical and product literature to find critical prior art needed for invalidity searches.
Our analyst team includes native speakers in multiple languages, including five major languages across all technologies. This allows us to perform native language searching, both online and on the ground, which can be particularly critical for invalidity searches because non-English sources anywhere in the world may provide the critical prior art needed to make your case.
Our specialist search managers provide consultative, responsive and high-touch services. We collaborate with you locally while coordinating your project globally from the top patenting jurisdictions around the world.
Our Reference Desk provides access to extensive resources for patent and non-patent literature. If the documents exist, our librarians and technical literature experts will find them.
EASY TO USE RESULTS
We deliver results in the format of your choice, from full reports to matrices. Every deliverable is designed to speed up the review process, enabling you to make quick and accurate decisions based on high-quality information.
