To receive a patent for a patent application, the patent application must meet all the patentability requirements. These requirements necessitate that the claimed invention is directed to “patentable subject matter,” is adequately supported by the disclosure, and is both novel and non-obvious. Because the patent process can be expensive, we believe that every inventor should have at least one patent search conducted by a licensed patent attorney or agent.
At Boudwin Intellectual Property Law, we perform patent searches every day for a wide range of inventions and will try our hardest to locate any potentially relevant “prior art” for your invention and will also provide you with an opinion on the patentability of the invention. This service will assist you with deciding whether to proceed with preparing and filing a patent application for your invention.
