Performance Checks to Provide Better Patent Services
For patent practitioners, feedback is crucial for making informed decisions and providing better patent services. More specifically, we need actionable patent data and analytics to help us understand how well we have been doing and how our performance compares to that of others. It can also clue us in as to what we can do differently to achieve better results for our clients. But perhaps most important is the fact that feedback needs to be as close to real-time as possible. In that way, we can address mistakes before we submit them to the USPTO and take actions that ensure mistakes will not be repeated on future projects.
LexisNexis® Intellectual Property patent drafting and patent prosecution tools combine USPTO patent data and advanced analytics to provide users with the ability to do performance checks and receive feedback they can use to improve patent drafts and patent prosecution performance—and provide better patent services to clients.
Performance Checks on Patent Drafts
The LexisNexis PatentOptimizer® patent drafting tool integrates seamlessly with common and familiar word processing software and is capable of performance checks providing patent professionals with comprehensive assessments of all parts of their patent applications. PatentOptimizer® can be used to identify a full spectrum of issues ranging from minor mistakes, such as clerical issues and improper labeling of patent drawings, to more significant issues, such as lack of antecedent basis in an invention’s description, as well as other grounds for rejection. Significantly, PatentOptimizer evaluations are nearly instantaneous, so patent practitioners can address issues before their patent application reaches their patent examiner’s desk.
Patent Prosecution Performance Checks
While it is important to draft high-quality patent applications, it is equally important for patent professionals to strive to improve their performance post-filing. The LexisNexis PatentAdvisor® patent analytics platform allows patent professionals to create digital briefcases containing any or all of the patents they (or their firm) have worked on. Users can run performance analytics on the briefcase contents as a whole or on any patent or patent application within the briefcase. PatentAdvisor™ users can view patent statistics, such as how many office actions an application received or how many office actions a specific patent attorney receives on average. Users can conduct performance checks to assess their patent performance in specific technology centers to identify areas of strength and weakness, and they can even rely on proprietary PatentAdvisor metrics to determine how well they have performed in light of the difficulty of the patent examiner.
