Our patent filing/ patent prosecution process typically start with interviewing the inventor to understand the nature of the invention and help clarify its novel features. Practitioners need to ascertain what is already known to people familiar with the general field of the invention—such already-known material is termed the prior art, and to obtain drawings and written notes regarding the features of the invention and the background. In order to find the prior art we do prior art / patentability search
During this initial phase, sometimes termed "patent preparation", our Lawyers may also seek to determine precisely who contributed to the making of the invention. An incorrect listing of inventors may incurably invalidate any patent that might result from an application, though you have the option of correcting such errors within one year from filing. Our Lawyers may also seek to find out whether any publications, offers for sale, or other such public disclosures of the invention were made. Under the laws or regulations of some international jurisdictions, public disclosures or offers to sell an invention prior to filing an application for a patent may prevent the issuance of the patent. This may be important in a PCT application
After drafting an application for patent, and reviewing it twice for the strength of the claims and further checking for the regulatory compliance, etc our Lawyers will files the patent application with the patent office. Usually, our Lawyers seeks to file the application as soon as possible, to get the benefit of the "first-to-file rule" where ever such rules applies.
Filing an application
Most patent applications have at least two components, including a general, written description of the invention and at least one "embodiment" concerning the invention , and a set of "claims," written in a special style that defines exactly what the applicant regards as the particular features of his or her invention. These claims are used to distinguish the invention from the existing prior art, and are compared by the patent office to the prior art before issuing a patent. Patent applications may include a drawing or set of drawings, to facilitate the understanding of the invention. In some cases patent models or prototypes may also be submitted to demonstrate the operation of the invention. In applications involving genetics, samples of genetic material or DNA sequences may be required.
