IP Watch/Patent Monitoring

Einfolge offers customers customized IP watch reports that track the latest IP developments in a specific technology or domain on a periodic basis. We provide cost-effective and high-quality Patent Watch services to help them stay updated about the latest happenings in their field of interest and monitor patents and new inventions.

Patent Watch or IP Watch is an exercise in closely monitoring your competitors’ IP activities, regardless of the domain your company operates in. By keeping an eye on your competitors’ IP activities, you can easily trace any possible infringement and pinpoint patents or products that infringe upon what you are inventing, manufacturing, or selling. A Patent Watch dives deep into the IP activities of your competitors so that you can have a bird’s eye view of their IP dynamics, patent litigation, research and development strategies, technology development, acquisitions and license, patent transfers, and ongoing patent activities. In short, a patent watch empowers you to stay at least one step ahead of your competitors.

We provide efficient technology patent watch services and perform quality patent analysis to identify business opportunities. Additionally, we offer legal status-based services to keep an eye on the legal status of a competitor’s patent application and change the R&D and patenting strategy accordingly.

Einfolge’s Patent Watch Service also alerts our clients to prosecution activities in connection with published applications as they relate to specific technologies of interest to the client or applications of their competitor. Depending on the client’s specific needs, our watch report may include prosecution status, pending claims, amendments made by application response to office actions, and prior art relied upon by the Examiner in various office actions. Our Watch Reports assist clients in making informed strategic decisions in connection with, for example, their own IP development and strategic prosecution.
