CWC Intellectual Property has the resources and the search tools to meet all of your patent searching needs.

Firstly, all searches are performed within the firm by our patent agents. We do not outsource our searches. Secondly, our searches cover over 100 patenting jurisdictions (including the United States, Canada, China, Europe, Japan and Korea). In addition, a PDF copy of each patent document in its native language is provided.

What Is Included

With our searches options below, we provide a report listing of identified patents of interest with bibliographic details and PDF copies of any such identified patents. Furthermore, a brief analysis of relevant patents found along with the patent agent’s comments thereon is usually provided for the most relevant located patents.
