Knock Out or quick-and-dirty search is performed to identify novel inventions from databases within the stipulated timeline. Such searches are conducted prior to making an investment in drafting and filing a patent. The knock out search is mostly preferred by inventors to save cost on assessing the patentability of the invention. Organizations leverage knock out search to reduce the volume of invention disclosures reaching to the next level.
We have in-depth experience in performing knock out searches by identifying prior art references which target the novelty aspect of the invention. The search is conducted using commercial patent databases and is restricted to three major filing jurisdictions, i.e. US, EP, and WIPO. Our report formats are extremely structured, easy to understand, and tailored as per your requirements.
