Meet &AI: An AI-Powered Platform that Streamlines Patent Due Diligence

Picture this: a legal firm has been assigned the responsibility of assessing the validity of a patent or patent claims. This could be related to a patent application or an intellectual property litigation matter; it’s a common issue for patent attorneys. The first step is for the lawyers to look for relevant prior art. Usually, lawyers consult with a third-party search provider, who runs the necessary claims and characteristics or conducts boolean keyword searches on databases such as Google Patents and other antiquated legal research tools. Whatever the situation, they have already invested much money into the project without assurance that they are progressing.

Once the attorneys have their previous art, they need to assess the claims about it. Creating work products such as claim charts requires reviewing each document multiple times to find and organize the necessary wording. This process can take anywhere from 20 to 40 billable hours. For every patent and case, the procedure is repeated ad nauseam. The only constraints on due diligence are the time and resources available to attorneys and their clients.
