The IP Prosecution Report reviews and ranks the top IP law firms and companies based on activity, efficiency and performance. The data is provided based on different tech areas: High-tech, Bio-tech, and Overall. The following metrics were analyzed to determine ranking: filing activity, pendency of applications, number of extensions requested, number of office actions, allowance rate, changes in the claim language and length of claims.
Patexia, Inc. is comprised of Patexia Connect (recruiting and experts), Patexia Contest (crowdsourcing prior art), Patexia Research (IP databases), and Patexia Insights (IP reports). The company, founded in 2010, is focused on gathering key IP data that clients can utilize to better evaluate law firms, attorneys and companies.
Last year as part of our continued process improvement initiatives, G&G implemented data verification to our docketing process. Using Foundation IP’s IP One Data System, data is independently verified throughout the life cycle of the patent.
Quality Paralegal, Erik Boyd, who attended the CPA Global Ignite Conference, summarized the the new tool’s scope:
Our docket entries are now compared against a pool of IP data obtained from over 100 external data sources. The data pool obtained from these sources is updated over 200,000 times a month, which enables us to have a robust process to validate priority claims, publication dates, grant dates, and patent numbers, among other things.
