The listing of Patent Advisor services currently includes:

Reported performance attributes include, for example, data related to RCE turnaround time, allowance rates, and appeal process outcomes.
- Patent Advisor Report Service This on-line service enables a user to select any patent application and quickly obtain a corresponding printable PDF application report that includes commentary and useful statistics that reveal what is “normal” for the examiner and the art unit assigned to the selected application.
- Patent Advisor Corporate Dashboard Service Corporations now have easy on-line access to comprehensive and dynamically updated analysis of how different law firms, lawyers, examiners and art units have managed the assets in their own product portfolio or in one of their competitors.
- Patent Advisor Law Firm Dashboard Service IP attorneys and their organizations can access this on-line service to quickly and easily compare their clients’ patent application statuses to a broad universe of metrics specific to the associated examiners and art units processing the applications. This information is useful for improving efficiency, for supporting marketing efforts, and for managing client expectations.
