Prior to filing a patent application, our patent attorney conducts an extensive prior art search using subscription based databases to determine if the concept of the invention is novel. The patent application is consequently filed with the patent office after the client has approved of the same.
Given below is a step-wise, brief description of the patent process:
Prior art Search:
The first step in the patent application process is to have a professional prior art search conducted for your inventive concept prior to filing the patent application. IP Legal Services' prior art search experts conduct a thorough worldwide and national search on the Thomson Innovation database to check for patentability, novelty and non-obviousness. The prior art search prevents unnecessary filing costs to the applicant if a similar concept already has a patent application filed. If the search shows that your inventive idea is new and unique, we will provide you with our patentability opinion. Our patent attorney will send you with the search results and our patentability opinion within 5 working days. A professional prior art search also allows us to write a more comprehensive application with broader claims for the invention.

If the search result indicates that the inventive concept is novel and may contain patentable subject matter, a draft of the patent application is prepared for filing with the U.S.PTO. For more information on our patent drafting process, click here
Once the draft of the patent application is prepared, the draft of the application is sent to the client for the client's review and comments. Once the application is approved by the client for filing, IP Legal Services files the patent application with the U.S.PTO or the appropriate foreign patent office.
Our patent attorney files responses to office actions issued by the U.S.PTO for patent applications under examination. Often, inventors receive an office action, for example an objection or rejection of a claim from the US Patent and Trademark Office, for which the patent attorney prepares the responses and optionally interviews the U.S.PTO patent examiners to advance the prosecution of the application.
