  • Did you try searching Google (patents) by the name?

  • @RonJ. Lets say I want to search all patents by stack exchange inc, what would I put in the search box in google.com/patents ?

  • You can use google patents advanced and put the company name in the field "original assignee". It is imperfect for many reasons. Company names change, they have subsidiaries with similar but different names and also patents are bought and sold. The original assignee may not be the current owner.

USPTO and FreePatentsOnline both allow the "an/" specifier for assignee, so you can search for "an/google" or "an/microsoft" for the most part. (Per George White's comment, it doesn't help follow business transactions e.g. subsidiaries and sales.)
