Safeguard Your IP and File Your Patent Application with Confidence
Get guidance on your strategy. Gain a competitive edge.
As important as it is to protect your intellectual property, it is equally crucial that you ensure the uniqueness of your invention in the early stages of the patent process. Bear in mind that to obtain patent protection, your invention must fulfil three basic prerequisites: novelty, utility, and nonobviousness.
A timely patentability search can confirm your invention’s novelty and uniqueness, saving you valuable time and prosecution costs down the line.
Beyond time and cost savings, conducting a patentability search before filing an application will help improve the overall quality of your patent. It can lead to better, broader claims, improve litigation strength, determine the competitiveness of your invention, and allow you to use your R&D resources more efficiently.
