The company’s origins began with manual searching at the USPTO Search Room. As the industry developed, Ensemble IP’s leaders adopted modern search approaches, including the use of multiple databases and full-text native language searching, and were selected to conduct PCT patent searches in 3 successive contracts at the USPTO in 2005, 2006, and 2011. During that time, they built the largest private patent search firm in the world with hundreds of employees in North America, Europe, Japan, China, and India. After witnessing failed experiments in semantic search and crowdsourcing, we opened Ensemble IP to, once again, raise the bar on professional patent searching. We achieve this by blending the results of highly skilled patent analysts with the most powerful AI tools available in the marketplace.
