Patent Searches and IP Research Services


Patentability (Prior Art) Search*

This patent service is delivered within 2 weeks.

Also called a Prior Art or Novelty Search, a Patentability Search is a cost-effective way to determine whether or not your invention will be granted a patent. Using the inventive specifications and disclosures, we search within the area of interest for both expired and unexpired patents and publications as well as patent related literature. The Standard Search includes only US patent documents. The Premium Search includes US and foreign documents as well as Noro IP's Patent Comparison MatrixTM which will help you analyze claims and identity competitive advantages.

$600 Standard Search
$1,200 Premium Search


Freedom to Operate Search*

This patent service is delivered within 2 weeks.

Also called Right to Use or Clearance Search (and sometimes referred to as Infringement Search), the Freedom to Operate Search identifies potential patent barriers to the commercialization of products or technologies. Noro IP will identify published applications and unexpired patents that could possibly indicate a risk of infringing upon an already disclosed invention, product or process. The Standard Search includes only US patent documents. The Premium Search includes US and foreign documents as well as Noro IP's Patent Comparison MatrixTM which will help you analyze claims and identity competitive advantages.

$600 Standard Search
$1,200 Premium Search


Validity Search*

This patent service is delivered within 2 weeks.

Also referred to as an Invalidity Search, a Validity Search is an exhaustive search that will assess whether the Patent Office issued the patent in error and will determine whether a patent will withstand attack in litigation. Our Validity Search provides an in-depth analysis of patent art that may be used to prove the validity or lack thereof of a patent already obtained. Clients provide the patent number and the claims of interest and we conduct an extensive search of US and foreign patents, publications and technical literature.

$1,500 (1-10 Claims)
$2,500 (11-20 Claims)
$3,500 (21+ Claims)


Infringement Search*

This patent service is delivered within 2 weeks.

Sometimes referred to as Freedom to Operate Search, our Infringement Search identifies other companies that are pursuing a patent for an inventive feature that our clients have “patent pending” or already have patented. Prior to conducting the search, Noro IP will work with you to establish the elements of the product that should be considered for infringement. We will identify relevant patents and corresponding claims that appear to infringe upon our client’s invention and could indicate opportunities for licensing negotiations.


Assignment Search

This patent service is delivered 2 weeks.

An assignee is the person(s), company, or entity that owns and controls all rights to a particular patent. Noro IP’s Assignment Search looks at all the patents, publications and technical literature that a particular assignee has invented or helped to invent and delivers the information to the client in a clear, concise report. This search can be as broad or narrow as necessary.


Licensing Search

This patent service is delivered within 2 weeks.

Our Licensing Search provides you with a list of potential licensees that may be interested in buying or licensing your invention. A license agreement should be drawn up only by a registered patent attorney and Noro IP can provide this service in conjunction with your licensing search as well.


Accelerated Examination Search (AES)**

This patent service is delivered within 3 weeks.

Also called Accelerated Exam, our Accelerated Examination Search (AES) offers pre-examination searches that comply with the recently enacted USPTO procedures for Accelerated Examinations. The new procedures allow the USPTO to advance an application out of turn for examination if the applicant files a grantable petition to “make special” under the accelerated examination program.



Examination Support Document (ESD)**

This patent service is delivered within 3 weeks (rush order done in 10 days or less).

Our Examination Support Document (ESD) provides a report that complies with USPTO requirements for applications with more than five independent claims or more than twenty-five total claims. If you choose to keep the application as is, Noro IP can provide you with a comprehensive ESD which meets all the requirements set forth by the USPTO.



Patent Landscape Study

This patent service can take up to a month or longer depending on how broad the scope of the study is.

Also called a Patent Landscape Analysis, a Patent Landscape Study consists of a highly detailed report and analysis of art, trends and possible directions of a client-specified field of technology. The report includes an in-depth analysis of the portfolios of key players in the technology field, which can greatly assist our clients in avoiding infringing upon current patents, provide an indication of research and development areas as well as possible licensing opportunities.

Start at $1,500


Patent Valuation Service

This patent service is delivered within 1 month.

Our Patent Valuation Service provides in-depth analysis as to the value your patent can provide throughout its remaining years of enforceability. Our team will look through relevant patent indexes, forward and back citations, possible licensing opportunities and the current technology in your patent’s sector.

Starts at $4,000
