Why do you need a global patent cases database?
Case law has strong potential in your toolbox, but let’s face it, its research is painful and time consuming.
You have to go through different sources to get limited results and fragmented information. It’s so burdensome that you only resort to it when you absolutely must.
Only a global structured patent cases database with patent-specific search tools can help you leverage the full power of case law.

Our users leverage the power of cases at every step of the life of a patent. From “Anticipation” to “Litigation”, see how our powerful search tools can be used to make decisions with more confidence. Click on the different links to see more details.
The search tools you need to find the relevant cases in minutes
Because our sole focus is on IP cases, we have developed the tools patent specialists need to search and find exactly what they are looking for.
Data Extraction is the Key
Once a document is gathered, such as a decision, it’s analyzed by a local patent specialist. When we extract data from legal documents, patent cases documents become data that is accessible, searchable, and mineable.
