The profession of patent law is becoming increasingly driven by data and statistics. Analytics services, like Juristat, offer profiles of patent examiners for use by patent practitioners - as well as profiles of law firms and patent practitioners, which applicants are using to make hiring and retention decisions of patent counsel.  

Also, the USPTO holds an enormous amount of valuable data about patents, patent applications, prosecution histories, and office actions. In addition to traditional user-oriented interfaces such as PAIR, the USPTO now provides access to this data via bulk downloads and application programming interfaces (APIs). However, many practitioners are unaware of the existence of these data sources, and persistent challenges with the quality and accessibility of the data may limit their use.

During this presentation, David will provide an overview of the existing patent analytics services and USPTO data sources. David will also discuss and demonstrate some uses of these resources to facilitate day-to-day patent practice and to develop a deeper understanding of the USPTO and the patent field.
