PatentAdvisor Efficiency Score

The foundation of the PatentAdvisor Benchmarking Reports is the PatentAdvisor Efficiency Score, a proprietary metric designed to overcome the issue of outcome variability at the USPTO. It is normalized for examiner difficulty and does not penalize abandonments unless they happened after a significant investment of time and money.

Unlike allowance rate, the PatentAdvisor Efficiency Score is:

Normalized for examiner difficulty

Normalized for number of applications

Not directly penalized for abandonments

How Efficiency Score is Calculated

All of the metrics currently used to measure corporate and law firm prosecution performance suffer from the same deficiency: they are highly dependent on the difficulty of the assigned examiner. Learn how every patented and abandoned application in our system is scored for efficiency, allowing you to more accurately measure your prosecution performance.
