How Does Quill & Disc Conduct Patent Searches?
We recognize the importance of a reliable and confidential search. We have developed one of the largest non-governmental repositories of patent information in the world and our own fully in-house proprietary software, with capabilities unavailable anywhere else. We are one of only a handful of companies worldwide receiving and manipulating patent data directly from the issuing US and European governments on a regular basis.
Over the past decade, our methods have been proven again and again. In fact, we are often asked by our corporate and venture-capital clients to conduct searches on already-granted patents, and we often uncover important documents that neither the applicants nor the issuing Patent Offices located on their search.
We apply the same tools, methods and thoroughness to new invention disclosures as we do in the review of granted patents.
