Business method patents protect processes, generally implemented by computers, that are involved in operating a business or that define a product or service provided by a business. Our Business Methods Practice Group has expertise in the software and hardware searches for financial, operations, manufacturing, and transaction systems. Due to the complex nature of business methods, our professionals often conduct these searches on the East System on-site at the USPTO. In addition, we have access to hundreds of trade journals and publications, allowing us to locate non-patent prior art, where business methods are frequently disclosed. While not exhaustive, we have completed projects in the following business methods disciplines:

  • Accounting Systems
  • Financial Processing
  • Credit and Loan Processing
  • Point-of-Sale Systems
  • Work-Flow Management
  • E-Commerce
  • Software (and related Hardware)
  • Investment Plans – Mutual Fund and Securities Trading
