Our Expertise

We are the industry experts

We are not boasting by saying that our competitors learned professional patent searching from us. Our leaders created and delivered training at Patent Resources Group (PRG) where they taught thousands of attorneys, agents, and analysts how to search in databases, physical libraries, and across native languages. We have educated nearly 1,000 people on patent searching best practices. In fact, our founder co-authored the only treatise on professional patent search, Patent Searching: Tools and Techniques, which has been a five-star reviewed book on Amazon for years.
Our current white paper predicts The Coming Revolution in Professional Patent Searching based on the application of powerful AI tools used by the most skilled human patent analysts to cite more relevant prior art and to better filter out non-relevant art.
