Patent Paralegal Services

For any technology company or R&D, it is important to keep watch on the IP activity of your competitors. We at DexPatent provide you with patent application monitoring and we alert you on a regular basis about the latest patents in your preferred field of invention. This adhoc monitoring will help clients who search for any abandoned/rejected/invalid patents in a particular domain so that they are free to use that technology without any legal risks. At DexPatent we do patent application monitoring in the cover called "QUICKPAIR".
