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).
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.)
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.
