Effectual Services Vision
WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT EFFECTUAL?
I have worked with Effectual Services on several IP projects. I have been impressed by their quality of work, as well as by their responsiveness. Their client orientation, dedication towards work, subject matter knowledge, and prompt communication is something that keeps me assured that I am working with an A-Team. They have always exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend the firm
Amit and his firm are the go to global IP firm for a number of services including prosecution, prior art searches, EOU analysis and market research (to name a few). His team is reliable, professional and Amit has proven his credibility time and time again with his work backing our success on the IP front. I would highly recommend Amit to the IAM 300.
Thanks for this report. Your service was excellent and the final product was very helpful. Your search coverage was greater than others from whom I requested information. For example, your search (as you originally proposed) covered utility patents while others only proposed searching design patents. You will notice from your results that there were many very relevant utility patents uncovered in your search. I will recommend your service to the 100+ patent litigators in our firm.
I wanted to pass along that you provided us with really excellent work – better than the other search service I have been using by some margin. I will be pleased to refer you to my colleagues, and I expect to use you again in the future.
I have been working with Effectual Services on patent drawing and prior art projects during the last several months. In the drawing projects, ES delivers high quality work product that corresponds to what I wanted and requires none or only minimal revisions. Also, ES usually notices and corrects minor errors in drawings (e.g., same reference numeral appears twice). In the prior art search projects, ES delivers the results in an easy-to-follow format that helps me draft claims that overcome the prior references. ES’s work product is always produced in a timely manner and, oftentimes, a few days before the deadline.
