Importing A Portfolio

Select how you want to import your portfolio

You can can upload or select a portfolio for analysis by searching for a company name (Party) or using a patent number list (Patent No.). 



Finding a Company


Look up patent owners (assignees) using a specific company or organization name.

  1. Use the dropdown menu to select the party you wish to look up.
  2. Enter a company or an organization name in the search bar and click “Add.” 

The system’s search results show the patent assignees associated with the keyword. Some results may not fit the keywords you entered due to reasons such as co-ownership or abbreviations.

You can go through the list to select the companies you want to include in the analysis. After you are done, click “Confirm.” 

If you want to select the affiliated corporations, including a parent company or subsidiaries, click on “Add Corporate Affiliates.” 

Select the parent company or affiliated companies by checking and adding them to the list on the right. Click “Confirm” once you have finished.

To add more than one company/organization to your analysis scope, simply type in another company name and click “Add” with the same steps mentioned before to add more current assignees.

You can refine the scope of analysis by clicking “Filtered by” on the left.

When you are ready, click “Confirm” to start generating the patent portfolio report.
