Law Firm Ranking

A law firm's rank is determined by the technical relevancy their patent lawyers. A lawyer's relevancy is calculated by analyzing every case in their profile. Their profile includes all patent cases where the lawyer filed a notice of appearance or was admitted pro hac vice since 2008.




Powerful Algorithm

Each case in a lawyer's profile is scored against the recently filed case by comparing the similarity between the patents in these two cases. We use a proprietary clustering and relevancy algorithm. The algorithm uses patent data, and its associated classification numbers, to determine the similarity between the profile case and recently filed case.




Weighting & Parameters

The algorithm weighs classification numbers based on data directly from the USPTO that describes how accurately the classification number describes the subject matter of the patent. It also relies on the duration of each case to distinguish between cases that settled quick and those that were pending for years.





Harness the Power of Big Data

The algorithm crunches all of this information to generate the final rank and technical relevancy for each law firm for each recently filed case.
