Automatically rank based on experience, cost, and subject matter expertise

For the first time ever, Juristat makes it possible to browse every single expert witness from past PTAB proceedings and rank them based on technical expertise, the number of past appearances, cost, and more.

We take data from every PTAB case and make it searchable, so you can easily find the best fit for your particular IPR, CBM, or PGR case.

How do we estimate subject matter expertise?

When you use our PTAB Expert Search, our proprietary algorithm compares your patent number to:

  • an expert's experience in similar CPC groups and subgroups
  • an expert's experience in the same patent family
  • keywords and phrases in CVs and declarations 

This generates a color-graded score specific to your search, helping you determine which experts have the subject matter expertise to help you win your specific case. Download our PTAB Expert Search Overview to learn more.

  • Names of the expert, petitioner, and respondent involved
  • Whether the expert argued on behalf of the petitioner or respondent
  • Number of PTAB appearances the expert has made 
  • Estimated hourly rate 
  • Subject matter experience score  
  • Links to download the expert's CV and Declaration

We estimate the hourly rate based on what the expert reported in their most recent declaration. This way, you always have the most recent data to help you gauge cost. 

We score subject matter expertise using a proprietary algorithm that automatically combines your patent number with:

  • an expert's experience in similar CPC groups and subgroups, as well as experience in the same patent family, and
  • machine learning that compares language in CVs and declarations to the claims and specification of your patent at issue

This generates a unique score to determine which experts have the subject matter expertise to help you win your case.
