PatentMaker: an AI-based solution for improved patent prosecution
Patent law firms have in recent years switched to electronic files instead of paper files. However, the workflows are often the same as before and the efficiency of the attorney often has barely improved. For example, the time needed to prepare an office action response has barely changed.
PatentMaker is designed for digital patent prosecution. Powered by AI technology, PatentMaker is a toolbox that automates tedious manual tasks, such as getting an overview of the prosecution history of an application and its foreign counterparts, providing all documents OCRed with the examiner-cited passages highlighted, adding reference numbers to claims, adapting the description, and creating a pre-populated reply templates.

PatentMaker Word Addin
The PatentMaker Word Addin provides a number of functions
The PatentMaker Word Addin was developed to automate the most common tedious tasks when creating office action replies.
For a claims document, PatentMaker quickly provides a visualization of the claim tree. It indicates in color any formal errors such as incorrect use of definite/indefinite article or incorrect dependencies. With a simple mouse-click claims can be merged (for amending claim 1), deleted (with automatic renumbering of all following claims), or reduced (e.g. for reducing the total number of claims while keeping all originally disclosed feature combinations).
For a description, PatentMaker automatically detects which prior art documents were cited by the examiner and offers to add the corresponding abstracts with one click. It adapts the description to the amended claims and finally allows you to automatically create replacement pages (1, 1a, …) in the EPO’s standard format.
Based on the amended claims, PatentMaker offers to create a reply template that is pre-populated with a description of the performed amendments and with standard passages for responding to the specific objections raised in the office action.
