Every patent practitioner knows that some examiners allow more patents than others, but most assume that the variability results from some combination of three factors: examiner experience, technology area and the merits of the applications brought before them. While all three of these factors influences examiner grant rates, they do not tell the whole story of the Examiner Lottery you play for each new application.

Watch this recording to learn the real reasons why some applications are treated differently from others, and what applicants can do about it.

Panelists Gene Quinn, Todd Dickinson and Megan McLoughlin discuss:

  • What the variability in examiner grant rates look like across the USPTO
  • What factors influence differences in grant rates
  • How to optimize prosecution outcomes with this knowledge
