Patent Re-exam and Post-grant Review Support

In recent years, patent re-examination has been growing in popularity as an alternative approach to patent evaluation and dispute resolution. In addition, the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act provides for new options to challenge the validity of patents such as the post-grant review. A good prior art search is one of the essential components in a successful re-exam or post-grant challenge. As a dedicated intellectual property research firm, Global Prior Art has provided re-exam support in hundreds of cases, delivering key publications to our clients in a timely manner. Global Prior Art’s efforts in this area have been instrumental to our client’s success in achieving faster resolution of patent infringement disputes and reducing patent litigation legal fees.

As a trusted and experienced partner in patent re-examinations, we help our clients:

  • Identify prior art which raises a "substantial question of patentability"
  • Evaluate patent claims with patent experts rather than a judge and jury
  • Proactively validate strength of patent claims for future enforceability
