Our patentability patent searches cover US, WIPO, EPO, Japan, Korea, China, Canada, and hundreds of other foreign jurisdictions. We also thoroughly search Non-Patent Literature, including related electronically available journals, websites, technical literature, manuals, books, articles, and blogs.
“Freedom to Operate / Clearance Search” identifies the third party enforceable patents and patent publications which helps clients in assessing the risk of potential infringement in a particular jurisdiction. Product specification / Invention Disclosure are compared with the claim language of the patents. Legal status of the enforced patents and patent publications is also provided with this report.
We provide Validity and Invalidity Search, which help in confirming a patent’s enforceability or to invalidate. We conduct a thorough patent and non-patent literature search to identify the prior art literatures for invalidating the impugned patent. Potential prior arts along with the bibliographic details are included in the report. The report further includes mapping of the relevant text of the identified prior art literature. Further, antecedent and enablement issues, non-compliance to duty of disclosure etc. are also analysed to make the report more concrete. Further, we carefully scope the search to focus on the most relevant sources.
We undertake claim charting projects from almost every technology discipline, depending on client requirements and business objectives. Claim charts are combined with other analysis such as validity / invalidity, infringement, licensing support services or due diligence. Detailed element wise mapping of infringed claim is provided to justify the infringement or invalidity of the intellectual property.
As a part of Invention development we provide the inventor with the prior-art, existing in the domain required for further refining the invention. We provide complete end-to-end support from fructification of an idea to prior art search to patent drafting.
We offer design search in U.S., Europe and rest of the world. Our team of experts search for registered designs on World-wide basis and across various databases including Hague Express, RCD Online, and on Websites of individual patent office(s) around the World. The search also includes Locarno Classification based search.
We provide a patent landscape report to understand the particular technology or domain, its evolution, strength, technology leaders and their IP strategies, technological positioning and their chronological changes and their filing trends.
