Aurora North, the leader in delivering IP prosecution software, services and consulting for law firms, today announced that BakerHostetler, an Am Law 100 firm, has selected the Aurora North PracticeLink Suite for its top-ranked IP practice.
BakerHostetler was an early adopter of Aurora North software, advising the development team on key requirements for streamlining patent and trademark prosecution. With an IP practice of more than 170 lawyers nationwide, the firm is now upgrading to the latest version of Aurora North PracticeLink, which centralizes, integrates and automates key aspects of the IP prosecution process.
“Aurora North has been an invaluable partner in innovation, working with our team over the years to develop our internal portal for the IP prosecution team and automate workflows that enable our team to respond quickly to both our clients and to the USPTO,” said Matt Collins, Director of IP Services, BakerHostetler. “By adopting Aurora North PracticeLink, we’ll be enhancing the user experience for IP lawyers and staff, making it even easier for them to collaborate with clients, foreign associates and the patent and trademark office — and to deliver client service in the most efficient way possible.”
The Aurora North PracticeLink Suite provides IP practitioners and staff with a “one stop” work portal — integrating information across the applications they use, including docketing, document management, email, financials, invoicing, notes and more. Role-specific dashboards provide visibility across matters, including a clear view of upcoming tasks and deadlines. PracticeLink also enables firms to automate downloading documents from the USPTO, uploading them to the firm’s document management system, and notifying firm and client stakeholders.
“BakerHostetler is widely recognized for its commitment to excellence in client service and for using transformative technologies to help achieve its business goals,” said Chris Kave, CEO, Aurora North Software. “We’re very excited to work with the BakerHostetler team in implementing PracticeLink and in sharing best practices in how to get the most out of our IP prosecution management suite.”
