Developing a global brand can be challenging but very exciting.  Our consultation regarding trademark strategy will guide you towards making sure that the brand you build is sustainable and everlasting.

  • Pre-patent novelty search with guidelines to modify

 

Our search will be a comprehensive output of the results available at the most primary source, the USPTO database. The guidelines will include notes on how to modify the invention from a probable patent grant point of view, as most often there is a difference between what an inventor may consider as an “invention” versus what the patent office can grant.

 

 

  • Pre-Patent report

 

This report comprises of a comparative study of inventions closely similar to the client’s invention, in order to understand the path adopted by the patent office in granting, rejecting or opposing those applications. This will advantage the client from repeating the flaws performed by previous applicants. It is an absolutely factual report with statistics if necessary and therefore can be used by the client as a strong supporting document to explain the merits of their invention to an interested party such as an investor.

 

 

  • Report of modification from a patent law perspective

 

This is a very useful service when a client has an idea, or has formulated an invention but is unsure of patenting and even if the inventor believes it is patentable, since we analyze the invention from the patent office point of view warning every fault and encouraging every developing step towards a potential patent.
