All enquiries receive the personal attention and supervision of the directors, Victor Green and David Clarke, or the Principal Patent Analysts, Milan Bhattacharyya and Davinia Collyer, as regards choice of strategy, execution of search, quality control, and presentation of results.
We tailor each of our searches, via the development of innovative strategies, to meet the precise budgets and deadlines of our clients, providing results that will be relevant to every specific need and circumstance.
We work collaboratively with our clients throughout the searching process, keeping you updated with our findings should you wish. Our flexible and iterative searching approach means that we can adjust our strategies according to early findings.
Alternatively, we are happy to take full control of the searching process from instruction through to reporting. Our experience and capability mean that you can be confident that the results will exactly meet your needs. We are also willing to work alongside in-house expertise for those who do not want or need a more proactive service.
You can be assured that all information supplied to us will be kept strictly confidential. We do however advise a Confidentiality Disclosure Agreement when sensitive information has to be imparted before a patent application is filed.
Searching generally involves two independent informational tasks, the preparation of a retrieval strategy and the assessment of the retrieved documents.
Development of a retrieval strategy involves many skills, such as sampling, classifying and the construction of complex class and keyword combinations. A thorough knowledge of the public and commercial databases available is also essential.
We manually inspect each individual document retrieved by our search strategies and assess its relevance to your request. This can involve visiting numerous intellectual property websites to access documents in many countries and languages.
