Limestone - Research Bedrock - Is Coming

We just finished the fifth month of principal development on our groundbreaking patent research platform Limestone, and we are ahead of schedule.  Our research team is using Limestone on every search we conduct, and the results are even better than expected.  Recently, one of the references we uncovered using Limestone was used by a Defendant to successfully eliminate a U.S. District Court infringement litigation at the eleventh hour (the reference we uncovered was from the Plaintiff’s own portfolio!). This past summer, we uncovered a reference that helped end a three-year old infringement litigation in Europe (the reference we uncovered was from the Defendant’s portfolio!).  In the coming weeks, we will have some exciting news about the launch of Limestone.  We'll be inviting many of you to participate in a private beta to help us test it out before our grand commercial launch.  Let us know if you are interested in being a part of the next big (data) thing in the IP.

Local IP Happy Hour – It's On!

We’ve returned from a month-long road trip covering numerous states – meeting with clients and attending regional IP events (here and here). What we heard loud and clear is that IP professionals would like to get out among their IP peers more often - just to socialize.
So, in 2019 we will be partnering with a number of law firms, legal tech providers, and you, to bring happy hour social events to your city. There’s no “agenda” other than to connect with peers in a casual environment, share some war stories, and decompress.  More on cities and dates in January.
This month, we are pleased to be partnering with Hunt Pennington Kumar & Dula for the Austin IP Happy Hour. If you are in Austin, plan on stopping by to have a Texas made cocktail from local distilleries, wineries, and craft breweries. The event will be at Techson HQ this Friday, November 30 from 3:30 to 6:00 pm.
