Patent-Pilot has the most comprehensive global database of all law firms, who have represented patent applications.
1. We took all patent documents available worldwide.
Since 1980, roughly 80 million patent applications have been filed.
A large number of those contains information about the person or law firm who supported the patent applicant in filing the patent application and prosecuting the case before a national or international patent office.
2. We cleaned the information about patent representatives for each document
Information on patent documents is very rich, but oftentimes also very messy.
Sometimes you find law firm names on the documents, sometimes persons. Many times in very different spellings. In order to clean such error and inaccuracies, we created our own very complex cleaning algorithm.
3. We created a profile for every patent law firm and applicant worldwide.
Every patent law firm and every patent applicant worldwide is in our database.
For all relevant entities, we created profiles that you can filter dynamically in order to investigate client relations, filing behavior, trends, or anomalies. Our search engine lets you find the entities you want look analyze more closely.
