You can enter technology terms like "encryption", "battery electrolyte", "malaria" or prosecution-related terms like "alice", "ksr" or "unexpected results". You can also use boolean and proximity search operators to focus your search. See our main search page for syntax details.
Understanding this Search Tool
It is important to understand several limitations of this search tool:
Associations between cases and attorneys/agents in our database are made, in part, using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) processing of image-based patent records. OCR is not perfect, so some cases may be missassociated.
This search is based on information derived from a sampling of patent file wrapper records. That means that attorney profiles are not complete. Some will be more complete than others.
Please note that our profiles are built from a blend of publicly available data sources.
What does this mean?
You should not make direct comparisons between attorneys/agents in this database.
This search tool should only be used to help you identify attorneys/agents that have experience in a certain technology area, with a certain prosecution topic or that may have experience working with specific companies. It can also help you find an attorney in a certain geographical area.
Here's how the process works
Enter technical keywords that describe the ideal candidate's prosecution experience (e.g. use specific terms like malaria, cryptocurrency etc), but please do not describe a specific invention. Add additional filters to narrow the field to a manageable list of potential candidates.
Add practitioners that have sufficient matching cases and overall experience to your cart.
Complete the check-out process to view the names and detailed profile information for each prospective candidate.
Use your existing recruiting processes (e.g. in-house HR or an external recruiter) to reach out to those practitioners that you have determined may be a good fit.
During the interview process, use the practitioner's profile to aid in preparing and conducting an efficient interview. You're welcome to share the practitioner's profile with him or her.
