About Juristat:

What if obtaining a U.S. patent was faster, easier, and more predictable? What if we could remove some of the uncertainty and complexity that comes with trying to get a patent at the USPTO? These questions – and the quest to minimize uncertainty and maximize success – are what drive us.

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 believe the key to that success is building a team of self-motivated, curious people who get things done. 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.
