How can I make my patents as strong as possible?

Get insights and recommendations for potential adjustments that will strengthen your patent applications

Take Advantage of the Critical Laid-Open Period

When it comes time to apply for a patent, you want to be in the strongest position possible. Chipworks works with IP professionals and legal counsel during the critical laid-open period to recommend potential adjustments that will strengthen the patent application relative to business and IP goals.

Whether you have a single patent or complete portfolio, we can give you important insights into your applications and their relative applicability to specific technologies, markets, and companies.

Leverage Depth and Breadth of Experience

A critical advantage that Chipworks brings to helping strengthen your patent application(s) is history and experience. Simply put, we have read thousands of patents over the past two decades. Few companies can match the depth and breadth of our experience. Our proactive analysis includes many different manufacturers from marquis providers like Apple and Samsung to up-and-coming mega players like Google, Xiaomi, and Amazon.

This ongoing analysis gives us immediate access to a vast knowledge base that we then leverage to provide substantive and reliable insights on technologies, products, and markets. The depth and breadth of our analysis also enables us to achieve hard-to-match efficiencies that often reduce the cost of our IP solutions while saving time.

"We view Chipworks as an extension of our internal team. No one knows this aggressor better. Chipworks' intelligence, resources, and expertise are unmatched."

Know Exactly What's Needed to Strengthen Your Application

Chipworks will provide you with a detailed technical perspective that reveals what’s needed to bridge the gap between the way your patents read now and the way they could read if you made specific changes.

The changes we recommend can be the difference between a strong patent that reads well on specific targets – with the potential to generate substantial revenue from successful licensing programs or litigation activities – and a weak patent that costs you money each year, with little to no return.

See How Our Clients Have Benefited

Here are a few examples of how Chipworks helps IP professionals and litigation experts... and the results you can expect.

“The analysis provided by Chipworks exceeded our expectations. The company’s ability to strengthen our initial claim gave us the confidence to pursue a licensing program with an industry giant.”

Senior Manager, IP Department

“Chipworks was critical to our strategy, putting us in a strong position that led to successful licensing negotiations. At the end of the day, it’s about finding hits with our patents. That’s why I choose to work with Chipworks.”

Intellectual Property Counsel

“By supplementing standards based documentation with technical evidence of use, Chipworks helped us strengthen our negotiating position. In light of their responsiveness and ability to run parallel programs, they continue to support us in related licensing campaigns.”

Senior Licensing Executive

“Without Chipworks our case would have been much weaker. Chipworks provided credible third party analysis, which is what you need going into a litigation. Both my client and I were very pleased with the work.”

Senior Partner, Patent Litigation

“We don’t give Chipworks the easy stuff. We give them the work that we don’t have the capability to do internally. They helped us validate the potential of monetizing a group of systems patents that initially fell outside of our IP strategy. Now we see that we can derive licensing revenue outside of the semiconductor industry.”

Director IP Group

“Chipworks’ intimate familiarity with the semiconductor and microelectronics market helped define our options and move quickly from a negative cash flow to a multi-million dollar profit.”
