Home » Validation/Invalidation


Our validity/invalidity searches help you in validating the enforceability of claims or to invalidate the claims of an allegedly infringed patent.

  • Search to find invalidating references for a patent
  • Data sources include patent and non-patent literature published before the earliest priority date of the target patent
  • The search is restricted to a cut-off date determined from the priority date of the target patent
  • Information for the search is derived from the claims in the target patent
  • Experts in the art are consulted to identify potential references, research groups, or inventors
  • Results (our identified references) are used
    • To invalidate patents in infringement cases
    • To prepare for patent enforcement prior to licensing, royalty negotiations and patent valuations
    • As a defensive tool against alleged infringement by invalidating claims of the infringed patent
