What do you like best?

I like the Chrome extension tool that allows you to input data straight to the USPTO and the daily recap email of deadlines. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wish you could set the daily recap of deadlines to not send on weekends. I'm big on work life balance and that annoys me. The international marks also need better functionality, but this company is on to something and I don't think it will take them long to get there. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Better efficiency in our docketing of domestic marks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to seamlessly onboard clients and gather critical information concerning their trademarks with ease. As a solo attorney, my time is incredibly important. AltLegal's systems allow me to not only be more efficient, but also communicate with my client's quickly concerning the status of their trademarks. I love the built in email templates and that AltLegal will even customize your emails if you need to make slight changes. I no longer have to log into the USPTO's archaic system to monitor my marks, because AltLegal's docketing software does it all for me. Even when I'm not able to log in, I still receiving daily and weekly email summaries concerning my portfolio. I'm able to file trademarks much faster and focus on the business of my business more. It's a no brainer to have AltLegal if you're a trademark attorney! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Favorite features include the Patent and Trademark reporting tool, invention workflows, regular docket deadline reminders, and don't forget the extremely intuitive and easy to navigate Alt.Legal platform UX/UI. Alt.Legal has transformed our in house IP management tool for the better. Can't recommend this highly enough to in house counsels struggling with high IP outside counsel costs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing. We are very excited for new features! Alt.Legal has a ton of potential to grow and evolve with it's intuitive platform and API connections. Also, great leadership and customer service. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

This. Changed. My. Life. As a small trademark practitioner, I needed something functional and easy. This does it. Deadlines are all easy to see. It sends you a daily digest of marks coming up on deadlines, etc. It also pulls your marks in automatically so setup is A BREEZE. I am their new biggest cheerleader/ fan, and tell all of my non-legal friends how excited I am-- which is lame but shows how excited I am. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

They are new so I believe it will get souped up eventually. This is what I'd love to see:

-Ability to customize questionnaires and all aspects of intake process (right now, limited customization)

-I have some issues with logo sizing, but that could just be user error

-More robust copyright management options (I realize this is a trademark focused product, but this would be nice)

-Zapier integration would be great Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Realize that they are a new company, but know they are super willing to help you and offer support.

If you need something simple and easy to manage IP, this is it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

KEEPING EVERYTHING AUTOMATED and easy to see

Easier deadline management

Intake is a breeze Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Docketing and deadline tracking = the best Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Would love reference sections to be added in the future. No complaints so far. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The UI and functionality are impressive, and we know that Alt Legal has more tricks up their sleeve that they'll be deploying as they continue to grow and fulfill this very important niche.

The ease of docketing and the automated reminder emails are wonderful to ease your fears of missing important deadlines. Keeping track of multiple registrations, etc., can be a logistical and administrative nightmare - Alt Legal makes it a dream.

The intake software is another key component - no need for questionnaires via PDF or scanning/printing, etc. You send the client a link, receive your needed info, and can input directly into the USPTO application. The time you save allows for conversion of more opportunity. Highly highly recommended. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Huge time-saver. Covers intake, which is easily transposable to the USPTO applications. Covers docketing and statutory deadlines - a huge tool that lets us all sleep easy without worrying about possibly missing important deadlines Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

User interface is easy to use and intuitive. I like being about to access all clients' marks in a single search and to quickly get client-specific overviews.

Also, the deadline tracking is great, a true triple prong strategy! I check on Alt-Legal regularly for upcoming deadlines. They also send me a docketing email daily. Lastly, the integration with Clio also builds in a reminder there, so I'd be on top of all trademark matters even if I don't try. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The search function sometimes isn't as quick as it could be, but only a very minor issue. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Automatic deadline calendaring is a key feature which helps me out. I never have to worry about surprise deadlines. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Alt Legal automatically dockets matters based on the email used on a trademark filing. It integrates with my main practice management software Clio and my calendar allowing me to see the deadlines in multiple locations. I really like receiving a daily email that lists upcoming deadlines and recent status changes. This daily email provides valuable information in a single place. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The interface could still use some work. I believe they updated it but have not rolled that out. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Alt Legal as a back up docketing system for my Trademark filing deadlines. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The docketing feature allows me to seamlessly keep track of my IP filings. This task would otherwise be a burdensome very burdensome given the high volume of filings in my office. Trademark prosecution is significantly simpler with this software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing that I can think of. Save adding a trademark clearance tool of some sort, the software is rivaled by none and truly allows me to have a modern practice. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Allowing me to focus on legal while the administrative side is streamlined and automated. This software is solely responsible for putting my practice on the fast-track as a niche.

What do you like best?

It makes trademark prosecution easier, the interface is fantastic, it's structured, well thought-out, and constantly evolving and getting better.

The docketing program has made my life much, much easier. The viewing options, the way deadlines are presented, direct access to the USPTO file, reporting emails rival much more expensive docketing programs, and actually improve on them.

The team really cares about how lawyers work, and go to great lengths to constantly improve the software and make it even easier to use. Using Altlegal has significantly improved efficiencies. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing. While I don't use the intake version much, and certain areas could be improved (international docketing), the product far exceeds expectations and consistently outperforms. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Altlegal has and continues to save time and make my practice better and more efficient. It allows me to focus on the legal work, and significantly eases the pain of administrative work involved in trademark prosecution and managing of trademark portfolios. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
