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.

  • 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.
