We specialize in Validity Studies and Infringement Studies. Our staff has over 30 years experience in the field.
Searches are first performed through the files of the USPTO using the database available only at the Patent Office. This unique database is the same as used by Patent Office Examiners in the course of prosecution for each application.
But we don't stop there...
In addition to the expected boolean keyword search, each patent search is extended to include a comprehensive Class search, using the US Patent Office Manual of Classification. Each appropriate class/subclass is thoroughly and painstakingly searched, including the earliest Patent issued into each subclass.
We routinely pick up numerous references that are invariably missed by depending merely on boolean word searches. In fact, depending on the technology, a vast number of pertinent US Patents are outside the range of the text database. For Validity Studies these can be ... and often ... are the most pertinent references. Additionally, the absence of these important references from preliminary novelty searches can result in embarrassing and potentially expensive 103 and even 102 rejections.
