Corporations expect better, faster and cheaper patent drafting and prosecution

You have heard a lot about the integration of technology into patent practice. However, it’s difficult to know what’s fact and what’s fiction. But knowing the difference can help your company patent its inventions more quickly and cost-effectively, enabling you to maintain your competitive edge.

Corporate clients are asking for vendor services to be better, faster and cheaper – and legal services are no exception. As technology solutions like TurboPatent’s patent platform become further integrated into patent practice, evaluating how your IP program can benefit from it will help you remain competitive in an industry where legal-tech solutions take the place of manual processes. In fact, one-third of the top 30 AmLaw 200 patent firms have already embraced TurboPatent’s technology.

The automation and artificial intelligence included in our platform bring efficiencies to firms by taking care of the tedious editing and formatting tasks that normally eat up a significant amount of attorney time. This frees them up to focus on the things their corporate clients value – describing the inventive concept and drafting patent applications that are more likely to be granted. Are your practitioners employing a technology-assisted patent process? 

About TurboPatent

TurboPatent (A Rowan TELS Technology Group) offers a purpose-built patent technology platform to automate and improve the antiquated patenting process. We are doing for patents what Computer-Aided Design (CAD) did for architects and engineers – creating software to help professionals complete their goals more efficiently and with better quality. This platform is transforming the way enterprises protect their IP, giving them more control by making their practitioners productive. This is done by reducing the tedious, time-consuming tasks that account for a significant amount of patent practitioner time so they can focus on drafting and prosecuting meaningful patents.

In 2018, TurboPatent merged with Rowan and is the technology platform that supports Rowan’s legal services. Rowan tackles the shortcomings inherent with today’s legal-tech solutions for patents and anti-counterfeit. The legal consulting services team is comprised of executives with decades of legal, transactional and consulting experience that can provide industry-best strategies for corporate clients.
