Outlier Patent Attorneys

File Valuable Patents Without Wasteful Spend

Our Approach

File more valuable patents, and spend less on every filing with our data driven approach.

Patent attorneys are good at filing patents.

But they don't help you identify strategic, most high-leverage patent opportunities—and they rarely use data to help you pursue those opportunities.

Our data-driven approach helps you file strategic patents that improve the value of your company, while saving you money in the patent process.

Outlier is all about creating value. Our entire process, from start to finish, was about maximizing the value of our company.

Higher Patent Valuations

Our approach leads to

  • Our patents routinely receive top marks from various valuation methodologies, and can represent a 100x return on investment for our clients.

  • (This chart is on a patent that we drafted for one of our clients in the UAV space).

Outlier’s allowance rate is 90%, significantly higher than the industry average of 64%.

Higher Allowance Rates

  • Our allowance rates are upwards of 90% compared to the industry average of 64% in the software space.

  • (Our rates would be even higher if we removed cases that clients no longer wished to pursue, which represent about half of our un-allowed applications.)

Lower Rejection Rates

  • The average software patent is rejected 4.2 times before final disposition, but our clients' patent are rejected 1.7 time on average before allowance.

  • Our clients save an average of $9,000 per patent application because our patents are allowed with fewer rejections.

Outlier saved us thousands of dollars in the patent process by minimizing rejections by leveraging their data tools. In fact, our first patent was allowed without any rejections.
