Job Description for Docketing Specialist

Docketing specialists typically work with law firms, and their role can be critical. When a patent application is filed, it becomes the responsibility of the docketing specialist. All documents and mail related to the application go to the specialist, who notes all important information like due dates or fees and labels each document to keep them properly organized. Because law firms may handle hundreds of cases at a time and each patent application generates a large amount of paperwork, it can be difficult to keep everything organized and running smoothly. To manage this, docketing specialists use some type of system or software to keep track of everything.
