Patent Claim Chart
Patent infringement litigation is the most common form of litigation faced by companies.

Claim Charts are generally built to guide and drive the impending litigation. While the depth of the investigation and detail of the mapping can vary for any requested claim chart, the demonstrated infringement is intended to be the backbone of a potential patent case.

Claim charts are also known as ways to illustrate patent mapping between the products and the patent claims, which are used to signify “Evidence of Use” for licensing strategies and patent litigation research.
