Direct To Your Mailbox

Stay current in less than 5 minutes a day. The Docket Report provides a daily bird’s eye view of our practice areas in every U.S. district court, the ITC, and IPR and CBM proceedings in the PTAB. We comb through docket sheets (usually between 800 and 900 proceedings per day) and carefully choose significant orders or pleadings which are then summarized and categorized by type of motion and legal issue. The end result is a streamlined summary of the most applicable events occurring in patent cases across the US.

Conduct nearly any search in the Docket Navigator database and save the search as an alert. We’ll run the search for you automatically every business day and send you an email with new results. With Docket Alerts you can effortlessly track new cases involving any company or patent, new filings in any case, decisions on evolving legal concepts (e.g., §101 unpatentability after Alice), or rulings on any type of motion (e.g., motions for attorney fees).

You can also reduce email clutter by creating one alert for multiple searches in a binder. Compass will generate a single email that covers updates for the entire binder. You control the recipient list and frequency and changes to the binder automatically update the alerts.

New Case Notifications are the quickest way to learn of new cases. Sent multiple times per day, New Case Notifications keep you up to date on new filings as they occur.

Power Your Research With Compass

The most sophisticated litigation data delivery system available.

Precision Search Tools

Compass contains dozens of new search filters that help you slice and dice litigation data like never before. Filters are intelligently grouped so, for example, you can find both denied MSJ of infringement and granted MSJ of noninfringement in the same search.

Build Sophisticated Reports

Generate powerful reports in a few clicks with the Report Builder. It bundles multiple search results and comparative analytics focused on a topic of interest, such as courts, judges, patent portfolios, and law firms. It’s a great way to kick-start your research!

Organize Research Into Binders

Like a physical 3-ring binder, Compass Binders let you bundle and save searches involving similar topics (client presentation, research for a motion, etc.) in a single location. Each search appears as a tab in the Binder. Share Binders with colleagues and update as needed.

Consolidate Alerts

Reduce email clutter by creating one alert for all tabs (searches) in a binder. Compass will generate a single email that covers updates for the entire binder. You control the recipient list and frequency. Changes to the binder automatically update the alerts.
