Docket Alarm Adds U.S. Patent Application Prosecution History

Docket Alarm Expands Coverage With Data From PAIR
Docket Alarm has expanded its coverage to U.S. Patent Application prosecution history from the Patent Application Information Retrieval (PAIR) system and all of the underlying documents.

The Docket Alarm team will be showcasing the PAIR addition at the upcoming AIPLA 2019 Annual Meeting on October 24-26th in Washington, D.C.

“If a patent gets enforced, the action usually takes place in U.S. District Courts or the I.T.C. and invalidity challenges often come before the PTAB, but it all starts at the USPTO,” says Docket Alarm Founder and Managing Director Michael Sander. “Docket Alarm now offers attorneys the full lifecycle of a patent, starting with its prosecution history on PAIR, through enforcement, validity challenges, and appeals. Patent attorneys and litigators now have all the tools they need in one place.”

For the first time, Docket Alarm now allows patent professionals to: (1) mine the full record of the USPTO to find past arguments and admissions made by applicants or examiners, helping them craft better arguments and win more cases; (2) use legal analytics to build a bigger book of business, either by finding companies with growing portfolios or by showcasing your own firm’s work; (3) stay on top of an adversary or client’s portfolio, with fast-tracking of new prosecution activity.

Thousands of attorneys already use Docket Alarm to find new clients, win business and build a better case. The platform is now also available for U.S. Patent Application prosecution histories:

Track: Track the status of a patent application and receive up to hourly notifications of each office action, response, allowance, and other prosecution events

Search: Search the entire record of prosecution history, including within documents on Public PAIR. Filter by inventor, assignee, examiner, or Boolean search to find arguments

Analytics: Build customized analytics in the USPTO and generate statistics on time to allowance, allowance rate, and much more across a wide variety of filters.

Docket Alarm Announces New Clio Integrations

Platform Allows Tracking and Management of Cases in Multiple Courts from Clio

Docket Alarm has teamed up with Clio’s practice management software to create a seamless process for attorneys to track and manage their cases.

The timing couldn’t be better: With the Clio Cloud Conference 2019 on legal technology coming to San Diego on October 21 and 22, the Docket Alarm integration showcases Clio’s app marketplace, enabled by a robust API integration with services such as Fastcase legal research and Docket Alarm docket tracking and research tools.

The new integration allows Clio users to synchronize their document library with the court, via Docket Alarm's direct court connection. Underlying filings as well as the docket sheet itself are automatically uploaded with metadata to the Clio user's case folder. The filings are named in a user-friendly way and tagged with the associated matter, making them easy to find within Clio. The integration will save countless hours for attorneys and paralegals downloading court filings from a court website and uploading them to Clio.

“Clio has been partnering with Fastcase and Docket Alarm for years, and we have always been impressed by the value they have added for Clio customers. Integrations like Docket Alarm's will give firms using these services together an advantage in speed and knowledge management that lawyers have never possessed before,” said Jack Newton, co-founder and CEO of Clio. “We’re thrilled to offer this integration to our customers.”

“Clio is the operating system for modern law firms,” said Fastcase CEO Ed Walters. “With Fastcase legal research, Docket Alarm’s docket tracking and analytics, and now NextChapter’s bankruptcy form and workflow business, Fastcase is becoming the productivity suite for Clio-powered law firms.”

NextChapter by Fastcase, a bankruptcy solution and the newest member of the Fastcase family, will also be introducing Clio integration within their platform at the conference.

Docket Alarm and NextChapter will showcase these innovations Oct. 21-22 at the Clio Cloud Conference 2019 in San Diego. To learn more about the integration, along with all of our other features, email us at
