Patent Searches

Patent database is a gold mine which can be used to determine patentability of a concept, figure out latest trend in a particular technology, understand competitive technologies, mitigate infringement risk while launching a new product, to find out unexplored area of research to develop a new technology.

Our Team of experts handling the projects in various domains like:

  • Automobile Engineering
  • Electrical/ Mechanical/Manufacturing
  • Information Technology/Software
  • Electronics/Telecommunications
  • Organic Chemistry
  • Biotechnology
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Business Methods
  • Medical Devices
  • Blockchain
  • Cryptocurrency

A. Preliminary Search/ Sanity Search/Quick search and knock-out Search
Our team can do a cursory search through the patent databases and non-patent literature to provide a quick overview on patentability of your concept or idea within a short span of time. The report comprises of relevant results along with a brief discussion with our experts. We guide you with the best patent registration process in India and abroad. If you require a more in-depth search, we can perform a comprehensive worldwide prior art search including our opinion and recommendation. 

B. Prior Art Search
The prime objective of a prior art search is to ascertain published patents/ patent applications and non-patent literature such as research papers, articles, conference presentations which implicitly or explicitly disclose the invention under study. It is always advisable to conduct prior art search/es before commencing drafting and/or filing of an application for a patent. This will lower the risk of encountering relevant prior art(s) at the time of examination of the patent application and also provides an opportunity to the inventor to improve upon relevant prior art(s) at the initial stage.
Our team brings technical expertise and knowledge together, to perform worldwide comprehensive prior art search as per the client requirements. We are well equipped with the various trusted databases which help us to conduct quality searches in most optimized time. If you are looking for the best patent agent in India then you have landed on the right place.

C. Technology /Patent Landscape Search
The purpose of conducting Patent Landscape is to find out the latest research in a particular technology area, grey space or white space, top innovators, top patent filers etc. The outcome of Patent Landscape may be used to analyze patent portfolio of competitors in a particular technology, develop one’s own patent portfolio by referring to the latest innovations in the area of interest, shortlisting pertinent patents for licensing purpose etc.
Our experts adept at providing detailed technology insights along with specific business centric recommendations which assists organizations to take the best possible approach to achieve their business goals.

D. Freedom To Operate (FTO)
Companies/Business entities often conduct an Freedom to operate (FTO) search before introducing their products or process in a particular jurisdiction. The final outcome of the FTO provides threshold of possible risk of infringement of inter alia existing IP rights in the particular jurisdiction. E.g. the main objective of a patent FTO is to figure out any active patent/s (in the particular jurisdiction) which claim/s similar features as that of the proposed product or process and may face an action for infringement if the product/process is launched.
FTO search enable organizations to take an informed decision before launching a new product and mitigate risk to a substantial extent by showcasing opportunities to acquire patents, cross-license, work around and invalidate patents. Our seasoned professionals enable you to take informed decision which will be beneficial for you business in long term. Our strategies are always futuristic and do not provide short term solutions.

E. Whitespace Analysis
Whitespace analysis provides a good insight of what has not be explored till date in respect of a particular technology. This analysis provides the charts showing the technology growth and areas where further R&D can be done to gain a competitive edge and to carry out incremental innovation for new product development.
Our thorough analysis & white-space report of technology enable our clients to identify the future potential research areas. Our team of experts consists of experienced Post-graduates, Engineers, Techno Legal in many disciplines who prepare the report with intensive research and analytics.

Patent Drafting

Patent Drafting is a process and art of crafting the concept/idea in which detailed description of the invention is to be explained. The patent drafting/writing specification contains the aspects of the invention such as field of invention, background, summary, detailed description, concept drawings, abstract and patent claims for which protection is sought.

Importance of Patent Drafting
The understanding between a drafter and the inventors is important in the patent drafting process. It is crucial that drafter perceived the invention in detail, claims of usefulness and distinguish features from similar existing products or processes. If there would be any gap in drafting application, this will increases the chances of the application being denied or delayed unnecessarily by the Patent office.

Our strategy
Firstly, a detailed invention disclosure form is provided to inventors enabling them to communicate the information about their invention in full details for our team to understand the invention/idea.
Once our team precisely captures the scope and the work of the invention in the draft claims, the drafter begins preparing the required drawings to help further strengthen the claims. In some cases, the images or illustrations describe the existing inventions to make a clear difference between the concept and the innovation that inventor wants to apply for.

During the drafting process, number of deliberations happen between the inventor and our team of drafters to ensure the quality of the draft.
The advantage of working with us – We have the capabilities to draft as per technical nature of the invention and our experts will take care of all patent laws and rules associated with the country where the draft should be first submitted as well as all prominent jurisdictions.

A. Provisional Patent specification
The provisional patent specification is a basic draft which is file to secure a priority date for invention/Idea. Provisional Specification is filed when an inventor is in the process of finalizing his invention. Provisional Specification is not a full and final description of the invention. It contains a general description of the invention, its field of application and anticipated result. It should not contain the claims.

What’s the importance of Provisional filing
In today’s scenario and development in the field of innovations, the inventors/universities/companies file a good number of provisional application just to get priority date and a competitive edge over other innovators. A provisional application will be crafted in a short span of time which will give a user an advantage of ‘First-to-file’ which means that the inventor who first files provisional specification secures his invention against a similar concept for a patent being applied later by another inventor. Also, an advantage of filing provisional application is that inventor will get some time to arrange funds and test the concept feasibility in the market.

B. Complete Specification
As per Section 10(4) of the Indian Patents Act, 1970
“Every complete specification shall- fully and particularly describe the invention and its operation or use and the method in which it is to be performed; disclose the best method of performing the invention which is known to the applicant and for which he is entitled to claim protection”. The complete patent specification is a draft in which all details of an invention in a clear and complete manner. The complete patent specification is different from that of the provisional patent specification because it should be written with a claim or a set of claims. As a basic step of specification drafting, a drafter should understand that each claim in the complete specification defines an invention. We serve you with the best intellectual property rights and IP services in India
