Our Japanese Prior Art Search
We have a significant higher success rate than our competitors on prior art searches. There are some good reasons.
First, we focus on our strength in Japanese prior art search, which is a very difficult task, if not an impossible task, for a patent applicant before filing a patent and for a patent examiner before issuing a patent at USPTO. To search prior art in Japanese, the searcher needs to possess search expertise and experience, technical background, patent knowledge, mastery of Japanese patent databases, and language skills in both English and Japanese. Only very limited number of searchers in the world meet all these requirements. We are different from other search firms because our specialty is searching Japanese and other Asian languages including Chinese and Korean.
Second, we have dedicated Japanese prior art search teams. Over 85% of our patent searchers have either a Master Degree or Ph.D. in his/her search field and possesses extensive experience in performing Japanese patent or non-patent literature searches.
Third, we have access to all major patent and non-patent literature databases in Japanese, Chinese and Korean. All of our searchers are experts in using such databases.
We have right people in the right technology field and possess right tools. And we are specialized in searching Japanese prior art, as well as Chinese and Korean prior art.
