Insulate Your Client’s Patents with the Highest Quality Research

When your client’s patents are on the line, you cannot afford to rely on poor research or wait until you have a provisional application draft to do a prior art search. Making such a mistake during the patent prosecution process could result in wasted expenses for your client, the loss of future revenues or the inability to advance a product line. For you, it could mean losing your client.

AOP™ prior art research, surveys and business intelligence solutions help you build in quality from the beginning to help you insulate your client’s patent portfolio.

What makes AOP different is our research community that you cannot find anywhere else. With over 39,000 researchers from 170 countries, our crowd provides the most thorough research and answers you need to move your client’s inventions through to application much faster than typical processes.

Through our experiences working with our crowd, we have also identified some of the best and have hired them to work for us as internal researchers. When your matter dictates that you need a highly confidential or a rapid search, our internal researchers deliver the highest quality results.

AOP offers a suite of research solutions to address the varying needs of your cases.
