Detailed Disclosure Assistance
Consider saving time and money by having our technically experienced patent professionals expand upon your disclosures to fill out a more complete description of the invention and background of the technology area. Whether in advance of filing a provisional or non-provisional application, our well-trained patent professionals will work directly with you to develop high quality disclosures that can reduce your patent preparation costs.

Invention Brainstorming Sessions
Cardinal can facilitate brainstorming sessions to support your innovation process. This customizable offering provides a range of services such as developing pre-session brainstorming materials for your inventors, continuous patentability analysis during the session and disclosure write up after the session.

Defensive Publication
Cardinal provides an efficient cost-effective process for distributing Defensive Publications. The management interface is part of our online suite of IP Dashboard tools. Our Defensive Publication offering can be integrated into your invention disclosure process by using our IDEAS management platform.

All Defensive Publications include a verifiable date stamp, and our full-text, searchable database is free to the public and accessible throughout the world.

White Space Studies
When developing intellectual property in a particular technology area it is important to understand the existing landscape and find the “white space” where there is room for your company to innovate. Building upon a landscape study, our analysts will review existing references to determine where there are gaps in publicly disclosed and patented technology areas.
