The basic competitive patent analysis includes a listing by significant patent information as well by technical category. Since the number of patents of competitive interest can be large, we typically first want to define that number and then decide on how many patents to list initially and by what criteria, e.g. important competitor, technology of primary interest etc. We can also provide claim analysis for competitor's patent as well and can do a basic assessment of their industry value to the extent information is available to do so.
