Anaqua, a premium provider of innovation and intellectual property management solutions, recently announced a strategic partnership with Aurora North, a leader in delivering IP prosecution software, services and consulting for law firms. As part of the agreement, Anaqua will more closely integrate its IP management software with IP prosecution solutions from Aurora North.

Anaqua provides IP management and docketing software, including PATTSY WAVE, that is used globally by leading IP law firms and corporate IP teams. Aurora North is the developer of the PracticeLink IP prosecution suite, which is used by leading IP practices to automate, centralize and integrate patent and trademark prosecution workflow and reporting.

Through closer collaboration, Anaqua and Aurora North will be able to surface information to IP lawyers and staff more quickly and efficiently, reducing the need for practitioners to switch among multiple business software systems, and enabling users to focus on critical tasks.

“Our new partnership with Aurora North is the latest in a series of significant investments we’ve been making to enhance the services and solutions we offer to our law firm customers,” said Domenic Leo, Vice President and General Manager of Law Firms at Anaqua. “Aurora North provides a centralized platform for enabling seamless IP team collaboration and automated prosecution workflow. Integrating data and functionality from PATTSY WAVE creates even greater levels of visibility and productivity for law firms.”

As part of the partnership, the Aurora North IP operations services team will be available to engage joint clients looking to evolve their IP practices, offering assessment and advisory services to help align business processes, organizational design and technology infrastructure.

“We’re always eager to expand our circle of innovative technology partners who share our commitment to providing law firms the best IP prosecution capabilities possible,” said Chris Kave, founder and principal, Aurora North. “Today, firms are more focused than ever on improving lawyer and staff productivity, automating administrative tasks, and enhancing the service they offer their own clients. Working together, Aurora North and Anaqua can deliver on this vision, and much more.”
