When examiners put off work until the end of the quarter, it can have a dramatic impact on both workloads for the law firm, as well as chances of success for the patent application. The USPTO has an official term for this examiner procrastination - end-loading.
How can understanding examiner procrastination work to your advantage in patent prosecution? In this recorded webinar, we discuss:
- How Juristat calculates end-loading rates and related metrics
- The impact end-loading has on OA volume and prosecution strategy
- Which examiners procrastinate the most and get more difficult at the end of the quarter
- And which assignees are most impacted by end-loading
