Give your searches the critical edge
A winning search has to hit several marks. It has to be customised to meet your exact legal and technical requirements. It has to be delivered within your desired timeframe. And it has to leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of information that helps you make better decisions about IP.
Hitting all these marks not only requires best-in-class processes and resources; it also requires ingenuity. And ingenuity is what makes CPA Global the industry leader in patent and technical literature searches.
By putting creative methodologies into play, we deliver the insight you need to make critical legal decisions with confidence. Our global team includes more than 250 experienced patent analysts searching in 35 native languages from offices around the world. We have the scale to handle all of your searching needs, and all of our searches are supported by Innography data for a richer customer experience.
CPA Global reaches further and drills deeper to deliver search results to meet any possible need throughout the lifecycle of a patent, including, but not limited to:
- Patentability for innovation screening, application drafting, and prosecution
- Freedom to operate for infringement avoidance or product clearance
- Invalidity for litigation, post-grant practice, and enforcement readiness
- State of the art (collection) to document the current state of innovation for a targeted technology
- Monitoring for competitor , technology or legal status updates
If your requirements don’t fit neatly into one area, or if you need a search type or a search purpose you don’t see listed above, fear not. We’ll customise our searches to deliver the results you need, however you need them.
