Our in-house patent search department provides significant advantages over traditional outsourcing, enabling clients to benefit from seamless communication between the search department and attorneys.
Novelty searches can provide our clients with assurance that spending on their proposed patent application is worthwhile. Landscape searches allow us to advise whether there is freedom to operate. Competitor watch services provide periodic updates on competitor filings. Validity searches can support potential challenges to competitor patents. And potential acquisition searches identify valuable patent rights to enhance our clients' patent portfolios.
EIP has developed a proprietary patent analytics tool. Developed in-house by experienced patent searchers, database developers and patent attorneys, it uses real-time data direct from a whole host of sources, allowing our specialists to navigate millions of patent records and non-patent literature to produce user-friendly reports.
