Market your firm to its fullest potential to prospective clients and earn more business from current clients with credible, third-party, objective data. Showcase your areas of expertise with the proprietary LexisNexis PatentAdvisor Efficiency Score™ and real-time and fully-customizable Benchmarking Reports™.
Easily and objectively compare prosecution outcomes with the most accurate prosecution performance metrics available. The all-new, real-time, fully customizable PatentAdvisor® Benchmarking Reports™ provide reliable comparisons of law firms and corporations. By taking examiner difficulty out of the equation and scoring purely for efficiency, the proprietary PatentAdvisor Efficiency Score™ enables objective prosecution performance comparisons.
The foundation of the Benchmarking Reports is the PatentAdvisor Efficiency Score, a proprietary metric designed to overcome the issue of examiner difficulty variability.
Unlike allowance rate, the PatentAdvisor Efficiency Score™ is:
- Normalized for examiner difficulty
- Normalized for number of applications
- Not directly penalized for abandonments
Some patent examiners are more difficult than others. We created the PatentAdvisor Efficiency Score to take examiner difficulty out of the equation. We ranked every patented and abandoned application in our system for efficiency, based on different standards for red (difficult), yellow (average), and green (easy) examiners.
Based on their application scores, each law firm and corporation will receive:
- A red examiner score
- A green examiner score
- A yellow examiner score
- An overall score that is a weighted average of their red, green, and yellow scores
The score ranges from 0 to 100, with average being 50. Request your firm’s scores.
The efficiency chart visualization enables you to easily see how your firm compares to the competition. The most effective and efficient law firms are found in the top right corner. This type of information can make a powerful statement to current or prospective clients and will allow you to market your firm to its fullest potential.
