Some Recent Success Stories:

A New York patent attorney spent over $15,000 on unsuccessful searches. When he contacted us, we offered him the Silver Bullet invalidity search where he would only pay $2,299 (and not complete fee of $6,999) if no killer art is found – irrespective of how extensive effort we put. In 10 days, we got him one 102 patent prior art, two 103 patent prior art and one 103 non-patent prior art. He gladly paid $6,999, said he should have come directly to Sagacious IP – and now orders Silver Bullet searches on all cases.
