Bring Predictability and Productivity to Your Patent Prosecution Process
With LexisNexis PatentAdvisor®
Reduce costs, improve prosecution strategy and deliver stronger outcomes
We help you implement the best possible prosecution strategy to achieve success. Predict your patent prosecution outcome with PatentAdvisor™, the most accurate and comprehensive patent analysis software in the industry.
“The Examiner statistics have been of immense value in planning my prosecution strategy, identifying cases that require extra care and progressing those that have been subjected to further scrutiny”
“PatentAdvisor enables me to gauge how difficult an examiner may be and, based on the data, guides me on the best course of prosecution”
From patent attorneys, for patent attorneys
PatentAdvisor has been developed by patent attorneys, brought to life by IT developers and data scientists, and is constantly enhanced through first-hand feedback from AM Law 100® thought leaders.
Streamline your processes and take examiner variability out of the equation
Learn how we support your process to drive new efficiencies and bring predictability to prosecution.
Access reliable examiner statistics directly in the USPTO’s PAIR and Patent Center
Get immediate access to the most essential examiner and art unit statistics directly on the USPTO’s websites with the free PatentAdvisor™ Extension. Save time switching between applications and guide prosecution strategy, streamline processes, foster more predictable outcomes and build trust among your stakeholders. Available on Chrome™, Firefox®, and Microsoft Edge®.
Get a complete bird’s eye view of a patent application
Understanding the path to patent approval is difficult, sometimes spanning years and multiple attorneys. The PatentAdvisor QuickPAIR timeline design provides a complete visualization of the prosecution process of a patent application, including quick access to all associated office actions and appeal documents.
- Get immediate “bird’s eye view” of the prosecution lifecycle for any application to save time and increase comprehension
- Quickly open important documents without searching through the long list of IFW documents
- Use the “window of opportunity” to strategize how long an application’s prosecution might take
Predict the likelihood of winning the examiner lottery and identify high-risk cases
Tailor your patent application to target the most favorable tech center group and predict the likelihood of being assigned to a specific type of examiner with the LexisNexis PatentAdvisor® Examiner Lottery Framework™.
- Identify target tech center groups with a higher chance for a favorable examiner using the Tech Center Navigator (formerly PathWays™).
- Infer the current makeup of patent examiners (most to least favorable) in an art unit with the ETA Distribution™.
- Identify the probability of being assigned to a specific type of examiner using the Lottery Map™ feature.
- Predict the type and quantity of rejections and the likelihood of a grant based on statistical models in QuickPAIR.
Anticipate an examiner’s behavior for better prosecution outcomes
Now you can easily, and with more accuracy than ever, predict your assigned examiner’s behavior. With variability at every level of the USPTO, use Examiner Time Allocation (PatentAdvisor ETA™) to visually see how efficient or inefficient your assigned examiner works and tailor your prosecution strategy accordingly.
Examiner Time Allocation (PatentAdvisor ETA™) is a more reliable predictor of an examiner’s behavior than allowance rate because it:
- Includes all pending applications
- Factors how long the examiner has been at the patent office
- Is driven by the examiner’s behaviors, not by the filer’s actions
Appeal or not? Find the winning arguments
With access to valuable historical ex parte appeals information, PTAB Decisions makes LexisNexis the only prosecution analytics platform with more than 124,000 pre-grant decisions tagged to 227 legal issues supporting data-driven decision making, reducing prosecution and leading to higher quality patents.
