Drinker Biddle & Reath leverages the power of LexisNexis® IP Solutions to improve success with USPTO & reduce time spent on review of patent applications

Standing up to USPTO scrutiny

Drinker Biddle had been using a patent research service from another legal service company for many years, but grew concerned about the capability of the service to meet their needs as patent searches grew more complex and USPTO scrutiny of patent applications became more intense. The firm’s IP attorneys looked into alternative patent research products in the marketplace.

We were immediately impressed with the possibilities of PatentOptimizer to help us construct well-tailored patent applications.

Practical end-to-end IP Solutions

After testing and evaluating other patent research options, Drinker Biddle selected the first of what would eventually become a suite of IP tools from LexisNexis.

The firm is now a user of TotalPatent®, the world’s largest collection of searchable full-text and bibliographic patent databases; PatentOptimizer™, which helps patent attorneys construct well-tailored patent applications and deconstruct granted patents for litigation; and PatentAdvisorSM, which delivers predictive analytics and solid USPTO information so IP attorneys can make better strategic decisions and develop new business.

LexisNexis IP solutions are quite simply the wave of the future in patent law
