Patent Registration/Patent Filing and Drafting
Our Patentability Searches involve the US, WIPO, EPO, Japan, Korea, China, Canada, and hundreds of other foreign jurisdictions. We also conduct an in-depth search of Non-Patent Literature, including related electronically available journals, websites, technical literature, manuals, books, articles, and blogs.
Patent Validity/Invalidity Search
We provide Validity and Invalidity Search, which helps in confirming a patent's enforceability or invalidation. We also conduct a thorough patent and non-patent literature search to identify the prior art literature for invalidating the impugned patent. Potential prior arts, along with the bibliographic details, are covered in the report. Furthermore, the report also includes mapping of the relevant text of the identified prior art literature. Additionally, antecedent and enablement issues, non-compliance to the duty of disclosure, etc., are also analyzed to make the report more concrete and definite. Moreover, we carefully scope the search to focus on the most relevant sources.
Freedom to Operate Search
Freedom to Operate/Clearance Search identifies the third party enforceable patents and patent publications, which help the clients in assessing the risk of potential infringement in a particular jurisdiction. Product Specification/Invention Disclosure is compared with the claim language of the patents. The legal status of the enforced patents and patent publications is also provided with this report.
Claim Chart Construction
We tackle Patent Claim Charts from almost every technology discipline, depending on client requirements and business objectives. Claim charts are integrated with other analyses such as validity/invalidity, infringement, licensing support services, or due diligence. Detailed element-wise mapping of infringed claim is also provided by us to justify the infringement or invalidity of the patent.
