Due Diligence

Patent portfolio evaluation made easy.

A picture is worth a thousand words—even more so, an interactive chart. Turn sterile patent data into meaningful dashboards with Due Diligence and say goodbye to grunt work forever.

Bring data to life.

Patent data hides a wealth of information. More often than not, most of that useful information gets wasted with tools that only tell part of the story, leaving you exposed.

No more grunt work

Due Diligence eliminates repetitive tasks while simplifying those that are traditionally a challenge like identifying patent validity issues or forward citation applicants.

Find diamonds in the rough

The portfolio is analyzed to highlight those patents that have the most potential to generate revenue through licensing or enforcement—the ultimate goal of patent due diligence.

Set yourself up for success

Most industries nowadays have entered the AI era—not the patent one. Due Diligence, with its machine learning algorithms, gives you a competitive advantage over your competitors.

Maximum value, minimum cost.


The time you can save on data processing

There’s no need to waste time collecting, cleansing, and analyzing patent data anymore—we do that for you.


Of a patent’s price

The average price of a patent in a transaction is $200,000. Know its ins and outs for just $10—before investing.

From complexity to simplicity.

Don’t panic over huge and complicated patent portfolios. Due Diligence’s dashboards give you all the information you need: once you get to the end of the page, you’ll know what to do next.

A complete toolkit.

Discover what’s going on within the portfolio—before it’s too late.

Coverage and Status

These dashboards help you decide whether to keep going with the analysis or stop right away: global coverage, remaining life, and pendency — is the portfolio worth my attention?


The technologies covered by the portfolio, extracted from the patents’ IPC or CPC subclasses, are visualized through bar or pie charts — what does the portfolio focus on?


Patents with co-owners, co-applicants, or rights transferred to different owners may limit future enforcement. Don’t miss out on this vital information — will I have issues licensing the portfolio?

Historical Highlights

Take a closer look at the patents that have been transferred, licensed, or pledged, as well as those involved in patent infringement lawsuits, ITC Section 337 investigations, or challenged for their validity in USPTO PTAB cases — how did the portfolio perform previously?

Uncover hidden gems.

Quality and value metrics such as the Quality and Value Rankings — a Patentcloud exclusive—bring objectivity to patent evaluation.

Quality and Value

Remove the subjectivity that characterizes traditional patent evaluation indexes: Due Diligence relies on AI algorithms to evaluate the quality and value of patents.

Quality Highlights

Abandoned patent families and references cited by the examiners are an excellent first step towards finding prior art: find them all listed here without needing to sift through file wrappers.

Value Highlights

Will this portfolio strengthen my position in the market? Due Diligence tells you exactly which companies you can target with the portfolio. For more accurate results, we not only look at forward citations but also the filing trends.
