There are few patent search firms left that recruit engineers as patent analysts. Not just degree credentialed "engineers" but patent analysts that have actually practiced as Electrical, Optical, Software, Mechanical, or Chemical engineers with corporations prior to becoming patent analysts.
As a result, our analysts are well versed in the technologies and terminologies of their respective disciplines, and are keenly aware of how synonymous concepts and terminologies have changed over the decades, where to find the prior art, and who the key inventors and assignees are - a critical factor in finding killer prior art.
Lastly, Oink Analytics, LLC does not offshore any information or labor. All searches are performed in the United States by analysts with full US Citizenship. This is critical to our University client's that receive government funding for research, and many of our corporate clients that deal in government contracted technology development.
