Acquiring Patents? We can help.

We helped multiple clients in acquiring patents. In a patent acquisition study, we identify the patents that have chances of being sold and have overlap on a particular product or company. 

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

Have you ever found yourself stuck in these situations?

The assignee of a patent that your firm suggested to acquire, is not willing to sell.

The Evidence of Use chart prepared by your firm is not easy to understand and you have to spend a lot of your time on it.

The patents suggested by your firm do not target the high valued products of the target company.

The patents suggested by your firm do not target the unique or important features of the target product.

The patents suggested by your firm will expire in a short time or have prior-art concerns.

There is a lot of to and fro communication between you and your firm for aligning the search strategies.

GreyB can help you acquire patents that fit your needs.

Our flexible approach helps in meeting the 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 that is willing to sell the patent to you.
  • Has at least 5 years remaining in life.
  • Has a family member in the jurisdictions (US/EP/CN) of your choice.
  • Is not involved in litigation already.

Read what our clients think about our work (in their own words):

  • If I were to give you a testimonial, I will praise for your reporting format especially the level of detail you can capture in the analysis. Another aspect that struck a chord with me is how the file history was taken into account for understanding claim scope - this saves me time and shows your ability to do good work.

  • I don’t have much to add, most of my requirements are about good quality invalidation search as that’s what our firm is specialized in doing. The star point for me in your capability and services is how well you extend the search after my feedback in the invalidation projects. I am not sure if all companies follow this practice but I am quite happy to get your results and the routine feedback call you set up after the project is delivered.

  • Our corporate team has 4 divisions and we need a lot of work on the business use of patent data (Patent-Informatics). I got impressed with your dashboard capabilities, especially when you can ensure the accuracy of data behind the dashboard storyboards. This is quite a powerful tool with our internal customers as we need to present the patent picture very often.
