Patent Index is not your usual patent analytics company.
It does not focus on patent prosecution or litigation.
Patent Index facilitates economic development for communities, business development for law firms and law firm selection for enterprises. It also informs freedom-to-operate decisions for higher education and policy-making for governments.
