Featured Image-Integrating for Better Performance With LexisNexis Patent Optimizer

The LexisNexis PatentOptimizer® patent drafting tool has earned a reputation among users for helping them quickly produce patent document drafts that perform better among USPTO patent examiners. PatentOptimizer® users can spend less time drafting patent applications and office action responses by relying on the insights provided by the user-friendly platform, and PatentOptimizer reviews and analyzes written content for quality and consistency 

Many patent professionals who use PatentOptimizer appreciate how it integrates seamlessly with the word processing tools they already use, including Microsoft® Word, Mozilla® Firefox®, Internet Explorer®, Adobe® Acrobat® 8.0, and Acrobat Reader® 8.0; however, the real power of PatentOptimizer comes from its ability to access and retrieve information from several useful third-party databases. PatentOptimizer taps into full-text patent information and post-issuance data from the USPTO, federal case law and administrative rulings, the Matthew Bender® Attorney’s Dictionary of Patent Claims, the Ei Compendex® database and many other sources, to accomplish tasks that patent practitioners have grown to love.

Check Terms

With a direct line to USPTO patent records, PatentOptimizer can generate lists of previous patent cases that include references and interpretations of the terms and phrases you include in your patent documents. Combined with access to online dictionaries and thesauruses, patent professionals have access to options to help them ensure that the language they use conveys their intended meaning. 

Check References

PatentOptimizer allows users to keep all their patent citation references just a click away. By identifying citations within patent document drafts and maintaining an open channel with the USPTO’s archives, users can use the “Check References” feature to retrieve and review bibliographic information that relates to their case. PatentOptimizer also empowers its users to export material information from within cited reference documents for easy verification and analysis. 

Information Data Statement Auto-Population 

Manually populating those pesky Information Disclosure Statement (IDS) forms is a thing of the past. Patent practitioners must disclose to the USPTO any references that they know to be material to the patentability of their invention, but they do not have to waste time in the process. By providing PatentOptimizer with only a list of reference numbers, PatentOptimizer is capable of extracting from the references all the information requested in a USPTO IDS form. After a user verifies that the extracted information matches what they requested, PatentOptimizer can automatically fill an IDS form, so users can focus their attention on more important matters.

Office Action Response Tool 

Time is too valuable to waste solving problems that already have known solutions. The USPTO patent document archives span decades and contain file wrappers for millions previously filed patent applications. The rejection you recently received from a USPTO patent examiner likely mirrors many of the rejections patent applicants have faced in the past, and many of those previous applicants probably found creative ways to respond to office actions, overcome their rejections and obtain the patent they were fighting for. PatentOptimizer analyzes USPTO patent filings for its users and identifies arguments that have proven to be successful. Users can then use those past filings to generate fortified drafts of their office action responses.  


 PatentOptimizer makes patent drafting and reviews quick and easy, but not without help. With many integrations and data access points, PatentOptimizer helps patent practitioners ensure that their projects are error-free and completed with efficiency.
