Acquiring Patents? We can help.

We’ve helped multiple clients in acquiring patents. Our patent acquisition study identifies the patents with possible overlap on a particular company or product, as well as their chances of being acquired.

The end output from our side is Evidence of Use (EoU) charts for the identified patents. So, you can take the final call on the purchase.

Do you ever find yourself stuck in these situations?

Your firm suggested acquiring a patent, but the assignee refuses to sell.

The Evidence of Use chart prepared is difficult to understand and taxing.

The suggested patents don’t target the high-value products of the company.

Suggested patents do not target the unique or critical aspects of the target product.

Patents suggested will expire soon or have prior art concerns.

You and your firm go to and fro a lot while aligning the search strategy.

GreyB can help you acquire patents that fit your needs.

Our customized approach meets your specific needs.

For example – you might be interested in a patent that meets the following criterion:

  • Overlaps on the products/companies of your choice.
  • Is assigned to an entity willing to sell their patents.
  • Has at least 5 years remaining life.
  • Has a family member in the jurisdictions (US/EP/CN) of your choice.
  • Is not involved in prior litigations.

You ask, we deliver.

Tools we use in Patent Acquisition Studies:

Business Opportunity for Sales (BOS)
A non-aggressive way to license & monetize your patents
BOS stands for Business Opportunity for Sales. And it finds those opportunities by finding patents that received a rejection (102/103 type) due to one of your patents. A tool that can incorporate your organizational structure and blend perfectly with your existing processes.

His teams have been staffed with technical folks in the relevant subject areas and I especially appreciate his willingness to hold interim discussions to direct and focus the search.

  • I've worked with Anupam and GreyB on a number of occasions when I've needed top-notch prior art search, and will surely do so again in the future. Anupam is dedicated to client satisfaction and is constantly working to ensure that he and his team have exceeded expectations.

  • I had no idea how complicated and complex a patentability search and features list development was going to be. Jeevan and the GreyB team were very helpful and forthcoming in creating a good template and study for my product needs. Their search was thorough and well documented and provides me with great value as an SME. I think that their study has given me a competitive edge and that I will successfully accomplish my patent registration at a lower cost now.
