The purpose of the patentability search and opinion is to find out if your invention may be patentable by searching relevant prior art. Upon review of your enabling disclosure, the patent attorney or firm will assess your “enabling disclosure” against domestic and foreign patents and patent publications and provide a written report of the findings. A sincere effort is made to locate the most pertinent art available when conducting a search.
Misclassified patents, missing patents, misinformation from Examiners regarding search fields, undisclosed features, and other circumstances beyond our control may limit the results of the search efforts. However, every effort will be made to provide you with prompt and efficient services and to keep you fully informed of the efforts made on your behalf.
To help you make an informed decision regarding the protection of your invention, you will be provided with digital copies (hard copies available upon request) of documents generated during the course of your representation.
