LexisNexis PathWays™ provides clear direction toward success when drafting patent applications

LexisNexis PathWays™ 功能

Draft your patent application to better target a favorable tech center group to get the best quality patent in the shortest amount of time

For decades, patent professionals have been working under the assumption that all patent examiners at the USPTO behave, more or less, the same way or that there may be some variability across different art units. But, when it comes down to the examiners within a single tech center group, the belief is they tend to behave the same and it turns out this assumption does not align with the actual evidence. The proof is now evident and easily available with the exclusive new Lottery Map™ metric available in PathWays™.

Positively influence the likelihood and the time it takes to get your patent approved

PathWays accurately predicts the path your application is expected to take at the USPTO, and helps guide you toward the best technology center group by characterizing your invention in a way that will get you the best patent in the shortest time.
