“In 2012, a lawyer, a data scientist, and a software developer walked into a startup event…”

Yes, our beginnings read like the start of a joke. But in bridging the gap between the legal industry and the technology worlds, we built a suite of tools unlike any other on the market.

Obtaining a U.S. patent is a springboard to innovation. But the process can be time-consuming and expensive. We aim to remove as much guesswork as possible from the patent application process. And since 2012, law firms and corporate legal teams have trusted Juristat’s data analytics and workflow automation solutions to do just that.

Here at Juristat, we continue to work towards that bold vision for the future of the legal industry. With each new product iteration, we’re one step closer to realizing our mission – to bring more transparency, predictability, and equity to patent prosecution.

We’re obsessed with improvement – in our products, our processes, and ourselves.

As an organization, we thrive in small teams that allow us to be fast and flexible and avoid the bureaucracy that slows growth. We are driven by opportunity and our passion for creating change.
