Last year as part of our continued process improvement initiatives, G&G implemented data verification to our docketing process.  Using Foundation IP’s IP One Data System, data is independently verified throughout the life cycle of the patent.

Quality Paralegal, Erik Boyd, who attended the CPA Global Ignite Conference, summarized the the new tool’s scope:

Our docket entries are now compared against a pool of IP data obtained from over 100 external data sources.  The data pool obtained from these sources is updated over 200,000 times a month, which enables us to have a robust process to validate priority claims, publication dates, grant dates, and patent numbers, among other things.


G&G Senior Patent Counsel, Atanu Das, a 2006 alumnus of Loyola Chicago School of Law, is currently a Distinguished Scholar in Residence at the school, teaching courses focused on Intellectual Property Law.  Students benefit from his expertise in several high tech areas of IP law. He has written numerous articles pertaining to wireless communication systems and has several new articles soon to be published in top US journals. Look for the following forthcoming articles in 2019:

“Crossing the Line: Department of Homeland Security Unconstitutional Border Search of Mobile Device Data” University Pennsylvania Journal of Law and Social Change

“Unlimited Data Search Plan: Warrantless Border Search of Mobile Device Data Unconstitutional for Violating the Fundamental Right to Informational Privacy” St. John’s Law Review

“Chilling Social Media: Warrantless Border Search of Social Media Infringes the Freedom of Association and the Freedom to be Anonymous of the First Amendment” Brooklyn Law Review
