Is your company getting good results at the USPTO?

The USPTO is comprised of 8,000+ patent examiners, each with a different examination style that can lead to different prosecution outcomes for the same patent.  In particular, some examiners tend to operate much more efficiently than others, meaning that the likelihood of obtaining a patent grant from some examiners is significantly higher than from others—even examiners with similar experience ranges working in similar technology areas.  So how is it possible to judge whether a quick patent grant actually reflects a quality application and good lawyering, versus luck of the draw?  And how can you know how much the outcome variability at the USPTO is affecting your outcomes?

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • How your examiner assignment can impact US prosecution outcomes
  • How to accurately benchmark your prosecution performance against competitors in light of the outcome variability
  • How European and Asian applicants fare at the USPTO compared to their US counterparts in some key industries
