We discreetly investigate targets you suspect are infringing your patent or make stealthy inquiries into the activities of competitors. This may include internet research, combing of databases, anonymous telephone and email inquiries or physical site visits. Our investigations are useful in uncovering third party infringements, exposing on-sale bar violations or confirming patent markings (as the case may be).
Marksmen is also effective at locating inventors, experts and ex-employees who might testify on your behalf and routinely make product sample purchases (e.g., building materials, medical devices, software, pharmaceutical products, etc.) for gathering evidence or legitimate competitive intelligence
Patent investigations are billed hourly or at a flat rate, depending on the requirements of the case.
