IP Proficiencies: Patent Matrix 

05-18-2020 14:06

The IP Proficiencies Patent Matrix was developed by CLOC’s IP Committee to help guide and inform legal operations professionals who support the management of patent prosecution and licensing of intellectual property portfolios. The Matrix includes proficiencies related to People (e.g., IP attorneys, paralegals, inventors), Process (e.g., IP asset management, annuities and maintenance fees, invention mining, outside counsel management), and Technology (e.g., e-billing, idea submission, docketing).  


Legal operations professionals can use the IP Proficiencies Patent Matrix to: 

  • Identify existing and desired competencies in the areas of Patents and Licensing 
  • Benchmark the organization’s maturity level against other IP legal departments 
  • Focus on specific information, tools, and tasks that will help mature the IP operations function. 

The IP Proficiencies Patent Matrix was presented at CLOC’s 2019 Las Vegas Institute in May 2019.  The IP Committee would like to acknowledge the hundreds of hours of volunteer time that it took to develop, vet, and present the IP Proficiencies Patent Matrix. Thank you to: Melanie Carmosino, David Brightman, Annya Dushine, Tina Elsner, Brent Harris, Adam Jaffe, Jennifer Karr, Stephanie Sanders and Sam Wiley. 

If you have comments or questions on the IP Proficiencies Patent Matrix, please reach out to the IP Committee Chair.
