Types of search services

Knockout, patentability and novelty assessment search

Let us help increase your success rate.

Our Professional Services team can save you time and resources in the submission and application process by identifying existing and the most relevant prior art, to help assess novelty and patentability of an invention.

This helps:

  • Increase grant success rates and reduce prosecution costs through better initial claim drafting in light of the best prior art
  • Drive savings and ROI of R&D spend by avoiding wasted time and legal expense for disclosures which may not be novel or make their way through pendency
  • Provide and meet IDS requirements and the duty to disclose as well as making filing more efficient
  • Improve Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) and other America Invents Act (AIA) mechanisms
