Patent Analytics for Cost Management

Patent prosecution is an expensive business, and keeping track of where your money is going can make or break the success of your IP initiatives.

Whether you are looking to avoid expensive patent prosecution or identify patents that are not worth their maintenance fees, Juristat provides the tools necessary to ensure your budget is driving growth rather than hindering it.

See how firms and companies use data to maximize profitability.

Predict high-cost prosecution

Applications with difficult paths to allowance can quickly become a drain on resources. Using data to predict and take early action on these problematic applications can shorten the usual timeline and save money in the long term.

Identify unnecessary maintenance fees

With Juristat, you can discover applications that may not benefit your organization and decide whether to keep them or drop them based on their alignment with your business priorities.

Choose an optimal office action response strategy
Companies demand that decisions are backed by analytical insight. Developing if-then parameters based on win rate data can standardize your team’s process, saving money in the long run.
Abandon applications unlikely to issue

The longer an application is pending at the USPTO, the more office actions it accumulates, and the more expensive the prosecution becomes. Examiner metrics can reveal if a lingering application is unlikely to reach an NOA.

Control your spending with custom alerts

With custom application alerts, you can spot potential high-cost prosecution and make a plan of action to get ahead of it. Set alerts on your applications based on specified prosecution events, office action or response counts, and even examiner metrics. Plus, you can forward your custom alerts to other members of your team, your clients, or your outside counsel – making sure all stakeholders are on the same page.

Juristat clients use custom alerts to limit lengthy and expensive prosecution, for example:

  • Recommend a CON for a likely NOA
  • Take strategic action on applications with excessive RCEs
  • Identify applications that have surpassed their assigned examiner’s OA to allowance rate
  • Recommend an interview based on the assigned examiner's interview win rate

Generate 102 Forward Citation Reports 

Quickly identify your most valuable patents and applications, discover licensing opportunities, catch potential infringement, and make data-driven decisions around maintenance fees.

With Juristat 102 Forward Citation Reports, you'll know each time an examiner forward cites an issued patent or patent application against competitors in 102 rejections.


“There’s a lot of competition, lots of price pressure, and having these patent metrics helps us save our clients time and cost during the prosecution process.”

At-a-glace ROI reporting

With our ROI Dashboard, you can curb excessive spending as well as increase IP value. These calculations show how unnecessary office actions or appeals impact cost and how interviewing or filing a continuation or continuation-in-part impacts IP value. It’s an at-a-glance report that can have a big impact on your revenue.
