Our Professional Features

We put serious effort into applications, with the goal of effective implementation of our clients' patent strategies. Where applicable, our patent services include the following features:

Professional Application

A professional-grade patent application is more than a paper detailing an invention—it is a legal instrument designed to implement a patent strategy.

Claim Drafting

Patent claims define the metes and bounds of the invention and form the core of the legal property right a patent is intended to protect.

Drawing Preparation

Patent drawings are a unique form of technical drawing, designed to accompany the application's specification and claims.

Specification Drafting

Specifications accompany the claims and drawings to provide the disclosure of the invention, and it's important a specification properly disclose the invention.

Assignment of Invention Rights

Oftentimes, there is a need for an inventor's rights to be transferred. We include basic assignment agreements where necessary to file.

Information Disclosure Statement

All involved with a patent application owe a duty of disclosure. Preparation of one Information Disclosure Statement (IDS) is included in our base price.

Application Tracking

Once a non-provisional utility or design patent application is filed, we track it through completion and keep you apprised of its progress.

Prosecution Strategy

A prosecution strategy must be designed to implement your patent strategy. We counsel on options, and can help you decide which path to take.

Office Action Responses

Over 80% of applications—including those ultimately allowed—receive at least one rejection. We advise on, prepare, and file responses to such Office Actions.

Examiner Interviews

In some instances, it is helpful to conduct an interview with the patent examiner to better understand an Office Action or advance a case.

PTAB Appeals

When an impasse in prosecution is reached, it may become necessary to file an appeal to the Patent Trial & Appeal Board (PTAB).

...and more

The specification and claims of a patent, particularly if the invention be at all complicated, constitute one of the most difficult legal instruments to draw with accuracy.
