Research and analysis

On behalf of our customers, we search intellectual property rights (patents, utility models, trademarks, designs), as well as scientific, technical and economic literature in commercial online databases of renowned hosts, in compliance with the PIZnet research quality standard:

  • Current state of the art
  • Review of property rights (novelty, infringement, raising an objection, citation)
  • Ongoing monitoring of competitors, markets, fields, legal status and citations
  • Competitor analyses
  • Trend analyses / patent portfolios
  • Patent rights status and patent families
  • Company and product information

Do you have a question about searches?

You can also do your own research work guided and supported by our professional assistants.
