See how it works. 

Just like an efficient assembly line, Juristat OAR works behind the scenes to automatically detect office actions and build custom response packets – all without you or your team having to do a thing.

1-4 Detect and collect

From the moment an office action is issued, our software gets to work

Once an OA is detected, our software automatically downloads all prior art cited, including NPL and foreign citations. We'll provide you with OCRed copies of the office action itself, as well as the most recent version of the claims.

2-4 Build

Assembling your custom response packet

Our software then gets to work building your OA response shell and client letter, fully customized based on your desired formatting. Our client success team will help you designate formatting ahead of time, crafting custom templates based on attorney docket number or customer number.

3-4 Review 

The best of artificial and human intelligence

During prosecution, small mistakes can turn into costly delays. While our software does most of the heavy lifting, we also have a team of dedicated analysts reviewing the work to ensure the quality of each and every packet.

4-3 Delivery

Delivered securely within three days

And just like that, we're ready to go. Within three days of the OA being issued, you'll receive a complete, ready-to-download OAR packet in your email inbox. You can also log in to our OAR Manager – one simple interface to manage and access all of your packets.

In this 30 minute on-demand webinar we dig into the latest data and reveal our annual list of the USPTO examiners known to procrastinate, the assignees whose applications are most impacted by end-loading

A few commonly asked questions:
How do I get started?
First, talk to our sales team. They will walk you through the process and get your initial 2-week trial scheduled.

Before your trial starts, our client success team will help you set up private PAIR access and hold an onboarding session to get you set up with a Juristat account, upload your Response and Client Letter template, and train you on the process of accessing and downloading your OAR packets.
Is there a trial period? What happens during a trial?
During your initial 2-week trial, Juristat will deliver a maximum of five (5) OAR packets per day. Typically, customers identify specific applications or specific clients they would like to see packets generated for during the trial.
Why do you need private PAIR access? Is that difficult to set up?
Private PAIR integration allows for minute-by-minute updates on issued OAs, so we can get your response packet delivered within 3 business days of the OA. This is not possible through the USPTO’s public data feeds.

Additionally, this allows us to produce response packets for both published and unpublished applications – something every Juristat OAR customer has requested!
Does Juristat OAR include preliminary office actions associated with the First Action Interview Pilot Program? 
Yes! Our AI detects new office actions as they happen without you even having to alert us. This includes preliminary office actions under the document codes OA.FAI and OA.FAI.PRELM.
How do I know my data is secure?
The security of your data is of the utmost importance to us. All myUSPTO accounts that you sponsor are unique for your firm with two-factor authentication and a unique password that is rotated as required/recommended by the USPTO to further limit the risk and extent of a breach.

Additionally, Juristat conducts annual penetration tests to ensure we are employing state-of-the-art security protocols. Additionally, each client's non-published data is stored with a unique encryption key, separated from all other clients on an AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). All network traffic into and out of the VPC is secured via SSL encryption, and maintenance access to all services and databases inside the VPC is carefully monitored and limited. Juristat developers do have access to code repositories on their local development machines. All routes are served over HTTPS, including authentication routes. Our state-of-the-art authentication provider is thoroughly audited, including SOC 2 Type II auditing, and holds rigorous certifications, including ISO27001 and ISO27018.
How much does Juristat OAR cost?
The price of Juristat OAR varies based on the number of office actions we’ll be processing for your firm. Some of our customers have us prepare packets for 100% of their office actions, others start with a percentage and increase utilization over time. Our sales team will work with you to find the best fit.
