Patent Audit Service

Data integrity is among the top Best Practices for all organizations and law firms in the IP industry. Our Audit Service emulates optimal data integrity by enhancing the completeness and accuracy of patent portfolios. We verify all patent data provided and populate any missing public data available. We use a unique combination of electronic data checking and country-specialized data analysts to deliver accurate audit results quickly, and at a lower cost.

As an independent service, our Patent Audits are available to any organization within the IP industry. They are especially valuable when handling new client intakes, acquisitions and/or divestitures, as audits ensure database reliability. Results are sent in report and electronic data formats. To further reduce user workload, the electronic file can be imported into any system which accepts electronic file imports.

Types of audit checks available:

Application Status check to avoid accidental loss of patent rights
