Validity/ Invalidity search is conducted to identify any existing patent or non-patent literature which can affect the validity of a granted patent.

We, at Adroip Services, follow a systematic approach to identify the most relevant prior art literature. We conduct searches using indigenously developed search strategies and effective patent and non-patent databases to find the results. We present our search findings in form of detailed report including the mapping of identified relevant results with the subject patent to be checked for validity.
