Patentability / Prior Art / Novelty Search

We identify prior art references that either alone or in combination are material to the patentability of an invention. Search results may include published applications and issued patents, both US and foreign, as well as non-patent literature. Our experienced search professionals highlight segments of particular relevance. Estimates are provided with turnaround time. Average Price: $500 to $1000

Validity Search

We identify prior art references that may be used alone or in combination to contest the validity of the claims in a patent or patent application. We also review the file history. Search results may include published applications and issued patents, both US and foreign, as well as non-patent literature. References disclosing the claim limitations are included in the results, and we highlight the relevant segments that relate to the claim elements. Estimates are provided with turnaround time prior to starting. Average Price: $500 to $10,000

Infringement Search or Non-Infringement Search

We identify a proposed product to patents and published applications having claims that may read on a proposed product. Prior to conducting the search, we work with you to establish the elements of the product or service that should be considered for infringement. We then conduct a search, identify relevant patents, and highlight claims within these patents in the search report. Estimates are provided along with turnaround. Average Price: $500 to $5,500

Clearance Search or Freedom to Operate

We identify patents and published applications that may pose an infringement risk to your product or service, as well as expired patents that may indicate that your product or service is in the public domain. Estimates are provided along with turnaround time. Average Price: $500 to $5,500
