Patent examiner variability exists at every level of the Patent Office. Now you can easily see how the variability impacts your pending patent applications. The three proprietary new metrics in LexisNexis PatentAdvisor® will help you predict the likelihood of winning the examiner lottery for your application.
PatentAdvisor ETA™ – This color coded proprietary metric is the single most informative way to predict patent examiner behavior.
ETA Distribution™ – See the exact number of red, yellow and green examiners that currently makeup any tech center, tech center group or art unit.
Lottery Map™ – This visual representation shows you the likelihood of being assigned to a specific type of examiner. When used in combination with LexisNexis PathWays™, you can effectively target tech center groups where you are more likely to be assigned to a green examiner, for any specific patent application.

But when it comes down to the examiners within a single art unit the belief is they tend to behave the same and it turns out this assumption is not correct. The exclusive new Examiner Lottery Framework™ metrics shine a light on the wide variability not only across the USPTO, but within individual art units. Learn more >>
