NuVasive is a medical device company whose competitive advantage derives from the speed of its innovation in products and procedures for the spine. The IP team felt it had no control over the patent application process and needed to understand why some took longer than others. Since process enhancement is vital to NuVasive, the IP team sought to devise more efficient strategies for obtaining patents.
LexisNexis PatentAdvisor® provided NuVasive insight into the USPTO process, allowing the IP team to craft efficient prosecution strategies and to quickly make informed decisions about when action was required. The company reduced bottlenecks in the process, resulting in more streamlined approvals.
