Patent Watching and Surveillance

Periodic Updates on Patent Activity related to a Client or Competitor Portfolio – Generates Actionable Information

What is it?

Watching and Surveillance provide ongoing monitoring of “news” concerning a patent or portfolio of patents such as new citations of a particular patent or portfolio by other patents, new applications filed by competitors that bear a close relationship to your own portfolio, new developments in the prosecution of key competitor patent applications, and patents filed by ex-employees that may indicate misappropriation.

Value Proposition
  • Improve strategic and tactical awareness
  • Obtain early indications of competitor IP or potential competitive activity
  • Monitor ex-employees for compliance with non-disclosure invention assignment agreements
  • Identify possible infringing technologies
Process and Cost
  • Client specifies companies to watch and select individual patents
  • Reports are generated and delivered to the client with attorney observations as desired.
