Patent-Pilot has the most comprehensive global database of all patent attorneys, who have represented patent applications.

Patent Pilot analyzes existing patents in order to identify the most suitable patent attorney. In our database, more than 2.3 million registrations are included, which were represented by more than 18,000 patent attorneys and 5,000 patent law firms.

Our database is based on a database published by WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization). These information were harmonized, adjusted and expanded considerably. For example, we have determined for each patent attorney in which firm he works and aggregated the information for each law firm. If patent attorneys are active in a corporations applying for patents (and not law firms), they are excluded from the database. Also we can locate every person or organization geographically. This results in a unique data base, which we provide free of charge.

 

The data obtained are aggregated to profiles of patent attorneys and patent law firms.

We provide answers to the following questions:

  • How many PCT patent applications were prepesented by an attorney / law firm?
  • In which years were patent attorneys active?
  • In which technological areas were patent attorneys active?
  • Who are the customers of a patent attorney or a patent law firm?
  • What indicators are assigned to patent applicants and attorneys?

Our algorithm searches the titles and abstracts of patent filings. You can enter three different languages: German, English and French.
