Prior Art Search (Novelty Search), also referred to as a Patentability Search, is done before filing a patent application. The purpose of conducting this search is to uncover the existing knowledge prior to the invention in hand, to check the status of the technology in reference to the development in a particular field, and to obtain relevant patent or patent applications that are parallel to the particular technology.
Our patentability search covers WIPO, EPO, US, Japan, Korea, China, Canada, and several other patent office databases in foreign jurisdictions in addition to databases such as Thomson Innovation®, Aureka and Derwent World Patent Index®. We also search Non-Patent Literature, including related electronically available journals, web portals, directories, publications, technical literature, manuals, books, articles, and blogs.
Clearance Search identifies patents and patent publications that can be enforced by a third party. Product specification/Invention Disclosure is compared with the claim language of the patents to assist our clients in assessing the risk of potential infringement in a particular jurisdiction Legal status of the cited patents and patent publications are also provided that enables our client to take informed decisions.
We conduct searches to identify relevant prior art literature that might invalidate the patent under reference. Potential prior art information along with the bibliographic details are included in the invalidation search report. Each document identified from the most relevant prior art literature is mapped to the claims of the patent under reference. The patent under reference is further scanned for enablement issues, non-compliance to duty of disclosure etc, to ensure there is no wrongful grant of a patent.
We provide our clients with patent landscape studies to frame key conclusions for a new product development, strategic investment for the growth of the organization and planning for Research and Development.

The study provides both the white spaces and high density areas of research and patents in a particular domain. Landscape study results are presented to clients in a collaborative databank with a user-friendly search interface. This helps our clients target their current research and align their future research activities.
We provide patent infringement analysis to decide whether a proposed product or invention infringes any patent in force. This helps in making a strategic business decision such as authorizing a Patent Invalidity Search on the patent in question for filing invalidity contention, to commence draft-around activities, or to consider licensing the technology in question.
Prior to conducting the search, we will work with you to establish the elements of the invention that should be considered for the Infringement Search. We will classify relevant patents and corresponding claims that appear to infringe upon our client’s invention which could indicate openings for licensing discussions.
