PATENT LANDSCAPE STUDIES

Our patent landscape studies are some of the most comprehensive competitive landscapes available, and are proving increasingly valuable as business decision-making tools for our clients. Through our access to both national and international databases, we are able to paint a picture of pending patent applications, existing patents, and the direction of research and development in a variety of fields. This thorough analysis becomes a blueprint that helps business owners and innovators understand the competition’s plans and develop an effective strategy.

Our patent landscape reports help clients look at large quantities of data while visualizing the bigger picture. Typically, the study includes a graphical representation of the available and pending patents in a particular field, how they relate to one another, the classification of those patents and where they are geographically, and much more. In essence, you can use this report to -
