Factors in how long the examiner has been at the Patent Office
Is driven by the examiner’s behaviors, not by the filer’s actions
ETA is a PatentAdvisor™ exclusive metric that is based on a proprietary algorithm that measures how an examiner behaves. It is a predictive indicator of prosecution length that can easily identify cases that require extra care and a carefully crafted prosecution strategy. Know when to build your strongest approach and when to appeal.
With ETA, LexisNexis IP helps our customers better understand their length of prosecution or anticipated number of office actions. All so you can expedite your success.
