STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
We put our internally trained and highly skilled team of more than 170 experienced research professionals at your service. This includes attorneys, former patent examiners and patent agents, as well as former practising engineers and scientists.
We combine the art and science of searching to maximise value for you and your firm’s 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 every requirement. We have particular expertise in leveraging non-traditional sources of technical and product literature to find the critical prior art needed for invalidity searches.
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.
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 worldwide.
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.
