What's in a Juristat OAR packet? 

Response (1)


A fully prepared OA Response

Juristat OAR eases the tedious process of manually preparing a response template for legal arguments. We identify the legal basis for the rejection and update any claim language, processing underlines, brackets or strikethroughs, and tags. We’ll take care of the response’s title page and caption, amendments to the claims, remarks, and conclusion with your signature block – so you can focus on more valuable, billable work.

Both the OA Response and accompanying Client Letter are prepared as Microsoft Word templates customized for your organization. This means you can customize specific headers or footers, signature blocks, font size, style, indentation, and formatting, as well as specific language for rejections, remarks, and conclusions. With Juristat OAR, you can designate unique templates for certain practice groups, clients, or types of office actions.  

Claim Note

During prosecution, small mistakes can turn into costly delays. Juristat OAR detects any examiner or attorney errors, and when appropriate, corrects the error. Common errors we find are missing punctuation, obvious typos, incorrect paragraph numbers, incorrect prior art citations, and caption errors. All errors and associated corrections are noted in the document for your reference.

Juristat OAR fetches all the prior art cited against you by the examiner and annotates it for you. Both the original and annotated versions are OCR-converted so you're able to search for specific text in the document.

Frequently 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 trail 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 my data 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.

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.

Is granting PAIR access allowed by the USPTO?

Absolutely! In fact, The USPTO’s new sponsorship system was specifically created to allow these kinds of interactions:

“Each sponsored support staff works under the direction and control of the sponsoring practitioner, and is an employee of the sponsoring practitioner’s organization or an employee of a contractor of an organization that is under contract to the sponsoring practitioner or the sponsoring practitioner’s organization.” USPTO Guidance, pages 4-5

Why do you need private PAIR access?

Private PAIR integration allows for minute-by-minute updates on issued OAs, so we can get your response packet delivered within 2 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!

Can I trust the accuracy of Juristat OAR?

Juristat OAR is based on artificial intelligence developed over time through extensive research, testing, and development. We're confident in its abilities! Additionally, we have a team of top-notch data analysts that audit OAR packets and take a closer look at any complex cases for an added level of accuracy.  

Is it difficult to set up private PAIR access?

Not at all! Now just one attorney at your firm needs to login to their MyUSPTO account and sponsor Juristat. Our client success team can guide you through the setup process.

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.
