Patent Drafting

  • 1

    Identifying the core of an invention

    This is probably the most important stage of drafting a patent application enabling for appropriate distinguishing an invention from the closest prior art solutions.

  • 2

    Patent claims

    Define the scope of protection, wherein the meaning of claims is interpreted with respect to the invention embodiments. An independent claim defines the maximum scope of protection, while dependent claims define the invention alternatives or additional features therefore thwarting third parties to patent possible future invention improvements or selective inventions.

    Embodiments

    Provide a sufficiency of disclosure which is a prerequisite for a patent application. Differentiated and numerous embodiments also enable for defining relatively broad scope of protection and for effective prosecution of future infringements.

A solution that is new, inventive and capable of industrial application:

  • objects (articles, devices, substances, electronic circuits, etc.);
  • methods (production or technological processes, methods of operation, etc.).

Certain solutions (scientific theories, business methods, etc.) are not considered as inventions, though in certain cases some forms of protection may be available.

invention

A solution that is new, useful and of a technical nature affecting shape, construction or durable assembly of an object.

The maximum protection of utility model amounts only 10 years.

Some patent applications may be converted into utility model applications in case their inventive step is objected during patent proceedings.

Comprehensive engineering and scientific education enables us to swiftly and precisely discover the core of any invention irrespectively of its technical realm.

We always do our best to define an invention as broadly as possible over the prior art, so that our client receives the broadest possible scope of protection. To this end we always explore how to extend the scope of protection that may be derived from embodiments provided initially by our clients. Frequently we inspire inventors to provide further embodiments or even create and propose new variants of an invention to enhance its representation.

We perfectly know that the principal object of patent protection is to bestow our client with exclusive rights for a using the invention commercially no matter the way it is and might be substantiated.

The specifications that we draft enable for easy, straightforward and univocal identification of patent infringements, as well as an efficient infringers prosecution. They take into account both potential invention development as well as general state of the world technology.
