Free Webinar – Examiner Procrastination at the USPTO: How End-Loading Impacts Your Organization

November 17, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm EST


When examiners put off work until the end of the quarter, it can have a dramatic impact on both workloads for the law firm, as well as chances of success for the patent application. The USPTO has an official term for this examiner procrastination – end-loading.

How can understanding examiner procrastination work to your advantage in patent prosecution?

Join us Wednesday, November 17, at 1 pm EST / 10 am PST for “Examiner Procrastination at the USPTO: How End-Loading Impacts Your Organization.”

In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • How Juristat calculates end-loading rates and related metrics.
  • The impact end-loading has on OA volume and prosecution strategy.
  • Which examiners procrastinate the most and get more difficult at the end of the quarter.
  • And which assignees are most impacted by end-loading.

Everyone who registers will receive a link to the recorded webinar. Those who attend the live webinar will also receive expanded data on the USPTO’s worst end-loading examiners.
