For rapidly growing innovative companies, intellectual assets (patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets) are the ultimate source of competitive advantage. These assets usually underpin the company’s valuation and must be managed carefully. The person responsible for managing the IP portfolio must orchestrate and coordinate activities of inventors, outside counsel, in-house IP operations staff and external service providers. At MaxVal, we see our clients’ IP managers struggle with juggling docketing systems, spreadsheets and patent workflow management in general. As the number of patent applications and foreign filings grow, keeping track and being able to report on status becomes a significant problem.
MaxVal’s Litigation Databank contains a comprehensive database of over 71,000 cases from the U.S. District Courts, the Court of Appeals, the Supreme Court and the ITC. Litigation Databank subscribers can search cases, produce reports on cases and parties, set watches and download case related documents.
Max-IDS is MaxVal’s cloud-based, hosted, Information Disclosure/Reference Management solution. Max-IDS is much more than a form generator. Max-IDS stores your references in a centralized database together with information about the cases citing each reference. This promotes consistency, reduces confusion and makes ad-hoc solutions (such as individual spreadsheets) unnecessary.
