Following up on our post from two weeks ago, the Top Firms in TC 2800, we now move on to the firms that receive the fewest office actions to allowance. Below, we’ve ranked the ten firms that receive the fewest office actions to allowance in TC 2800. To be eligible for inclusion, the firms must be based in the United States and have at least 500 disposed applications in the ten-year period between 2006 and 2015.
Please recall that we do not impose a value judgment on firms that have either high or low numbers of average office actions; we simply report the facts. A low number of office actions could mean that a firm did not fight for as much claim scope as they could have, or it could mean that the firm was precise and targeted when writing their claims. Either way, fewer office actions generally indicates a more efficient and cheaper prosecution, which is something both firms and their clients can find merit in.
The average number of office actions to allowance in TC 2800 is 1.55.
