gavel-patent-law copyReed Technology and Information Services (Reed Tech), a LexisNexis® company, recently announced the launch of LexisNexis PatentOptimizer for Litigators, which is a new version of its PatentOptimizer™ drafting and analysis solution that has been tailored specifically to meet the needs of patent litigators.

The original PatentOptimizer product was created by patent attorneys for patent attorneys in order to help provide internal well-tailored patent applications that are internally consistent. The goal of PatentOptimizer is to serve as a critical quality control check for drafted patent application, which helps ensure the filing of higher quality patent applications. The new PatentOptimizer for Litigators offering includes special tools to help litigators with claim construction arguments, locate Section 112 anomalies in the specification, and generate charts to illustrate patent infringement claims that are supported by a prior art analysis.

The primary new product features created for patent litigators include the following:

  • Term Analysis Report – an auto-generated comprehensive terms report covering both intrinsic and extrinsic evidence that includes the ability to select elements directly from a patent claim or enter your own terms for analysis.
  • Compare Docs – a new option in the Analytics section of the tool where litigators can now quickly identify changes that occurred during patent prosecution, including even the smallest of revisions between patent applications and patent grants.
  • Analytics and Reports – users can generate as many as 10 different summary reports based on the analytics tools in the software to support invalidation arguments.

“While PatentOptimizer has been widely used by patent prosecutors to develop consistent, well-tailored patent applications, we also found that many of our current customers were adapting the technology for use in Litigators,” said Ethan Eisner, Vice President and Managing Director of Global Commercial Markets for Reed Tech. “We listened to that feedback to develop PatentOptimizer™ for Litigators, a new purpose-built tool that leverages the best of PatentOptimizer, plus newly added capabilities designed to serve the unique needs of patent litigators.”
