LexisNexis PatentAdvisor®, at the forefront of patent prosecution analytics since 2012, now has a new examiner metric which is statistically proven to be the single best predictor of length of time for prosecution

HORSHAM, Pa., March 12, 2018—LexisNexis® IP today announces a completely new way for patent professionals to easily understand and execute strategy based on patent analytics for more cost-efficient patent prosecution. When PatentAdvisor™ first launched, it heralded a new era that allowed patent professionals to strategically approach patent prosecution with data-driven insights. We are continuing the PatentAdvisor™ heritage of introducing disruptive technology with the launch of PatentAdvisor ETA™.

Superior in predictability to examiner allowance rate, the new examiner time allocation metric through PatentAdvisor ETA is calculated using a proprietary algorithm that takes into consideration the examiner’s pending portfolio, how long they have been at the Patent Office, number of office actions written and a number of other factors. PatentAdvisor ETA measures both the likelihood and difficulty of obtaining a patent, to support more strategic patent prosecution and patent portfolio management. Within PatentAdvisor, the examiner time allocation metric is instantly identifiable using a green, yellow or red color coding to quickly designate the ease and timeframe for getting a patent. The predictive metric is available within the Examiner Statistics Dashboard, Guidebook, Examiner and Application Reports, Prosecution Pattern Monitors, various dashboards and visual heat maps.

“Patent professionals with whom I have shared PatentAdvisor ETA have been excited by this break-through metric that is easy to incorporate within their teams’ current prosecution workflow. Currently, practitioners look at an allowance rate of 50% and think they have a 50-50 shot. With examiner time allocation, we can see very different scores which give you a much clearer picture of whether you can expect a protracted or quick prosecution with your examiner. Just like PatentAdvisor, PatentAdvisor ETA will once again disrupt how the industry thinks and acts in patent prosecution.” said Christopher Holt, Vice President, Patent Analytics.

PatentAdvisor ETA is now available to all current subscribers of PatentAdvisor.
