How It Works

We’re revolutionizing patent management in 3 simple steps:


01Upload Your Patent Information

  • Add patents one-at-a-time, or in batches.
  • Associate patents with clients, departments, and internal matter numbers.
  • Works with issued patents, patent applications, re-exams, and provisional patents.

02Continuous Auto-Sync With USPTO

  • Notices, documents, and deadlines are automatically added to your dashboard.
  • You can choose to refresh your information daily, weekly, or monthly.
  • Supports private PAIR and foreign dockets.

03Elevate Your Workflow

  • Add events and deadlines to your work Calendar.
  • Keep track of who’s handling each patent.
  • Integrate your dockets with our DealRoom to monetize a portfolio.


The ClearAccessIP platform is free to use. The true benefits of ClearAccessIP occur when it's paired with our automated data feed, however. Depending on your needs, you may want the data refreshed more or less frequently. We recommend the Daily service for patent practitioners who are actively prosecuting or maintaining patents. The Monthly and Weekly services are good for users who use ClearAccessIP as a backup or audit tool.

As a user, you have complete freedom to turn the data service on or off to meet your needs. Your account and docket information will not be removed or altered if you decide to cancel your data subscription. To change your subscription, simply visit your account settings to update your preference.

We believe that your IP services vendor should be able to answer any IP related issue related to growing your business.



We envision a system where patent practitioners, business managers, and innovators can work together to create value in a way the patent system intended.

Patents are a necessary part of wealth creation in our innovation economy. We are currently experiencing a major market failure in terms of access and information, however. High transaction costs and a lack of information about the marketplace for patent assets has resulted in many innovators either failing to obtain or failing to monetize a patent.

ClearAccessIP believes patent management must evolve to meet the needs of the companies and patent practitioners operating today. We have eliminated many of the costs associated with building patent portfolios by automating patent prosecution and management, and we have built an environment in which patent prosecutors and managers can assist their clients in securing monetization for their patents.
