PATENTABILITY SEARCH:
Build Your Clients' Portfolios with Confidence

Your firm’s clients know a successful patent and technical literature search has to be customised to meet exact legal and technical requirements, delivered within the desired timeframe, and leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of information that helps them make better IP decisions.

An effective patentability searching program brings many benefits:

  • Reduced prosecution costs due to screening out inventions early in the process
  • Supporting drafting of compact, well-crafted patent applications that save downstream prosecution costs and improve allowance rates

CPA Global combines best-in-class processes and resources with real ingenuity, making us the industry leader in patent and non-patent literature searches for patentability. We can support your clients’ needs with multiple business models – from single searches to structured, high-volume programmes performing all your patentability searches based on standard, defined parameters.  And by putting creative methodologies into play, we deliver the insight your clients need, empowering you to help them make critical business and legal decisions with confidence.

In today’s patent prosecution world, cost reduction is paramount. Our experienced search professionals engage with you to understand your clients’ key objectives, including whether to expand the search to include alternative embodiments. We employ a variety of methodologies, including semi-automated playbooks and semantic search, which allow us to handle patentability searches with speed and efficiency.

These methodologies allow us to search efficiently and identify the best references quickly.  We  minimise the time spent on collection and maximise the time spent on review and analysis. As a result, your clients get the best value and great results quickly, even with a very limited budget.  We help you to save both time and money.
