What Tech Fields has my Examiner/Opposition/Board Member Worked Within?
It is not easy to understand what technology experience your counterpart has worked within previously. Does the Primary Examiner have the relevant technical know-how? Within which IPC has your Chairperson mainly handled Oppositions?
All of these valid questions can determine how you approach written submission or the upcoming Oral Proceedings.
The ipQuants solutions allow you to retrieve the IPC break-down for each relevant Opposition Division member, Primary Examiner or Board member to better understand who you are dealing with. The below table gives one example of how the IPC break-down allows you to understand the Chairperson's or 1st Examiner's previous activity by technology field. Armed with these insights, you will be able to better prepare for Oral proceedings and written submissions.
