On behalf of the customer we search the technical and economic literature, as well as literature in the field of property rights (patents, utility models, trademarks, designs) in commercial online databases of pre-established hosts, subject to quality standards in research work according to PIZnet Standard for Patent Searching:

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