We Stay in Our Lane
The Carson Patents Leadership Team specializes in writing and prosecuting patent applications. We write new patent applications for inventions and prosecute them to allowance or final rejection. Our leadership team is focused on representing new inventions in patent applications. We specialize in working with inventors to seek patent protection for their inventions. Seeking patent protection starts with a prior art search and a patentability study. This research and evaluation is done to provide us with a reasonable good faith based belief that the claims of the new invention are allowable in a patent. There are no guarantees, but we only write patent applications that we believe are patentable.
We Write and Prosecute Patent Applications
We work directly with inventors to search for prior art and determine if we can write a set of allowable claims to protect the invention with a patent. If the invention is patentable, we write the claims, create the drawings, write the specification, write the abstract, complete all necessary/proper forms, and submit the patent application. When the patent prosecution begins, we monitor and receive communications from the USPTO and work with you to respond to office actions (letters).
Inventor Centric Patent Application Focused on Your Invention
Inventor Tip: We can write and file accelerated examination patent applications under the USPTO’s Accelerated Examination Program for both utility and design patent applications. This USPTO program is meant to get to a final decision regarding allowance and issue, or rejection, within 12 months by adding a pre-examination search, an accelerated examination support document (AESD), and an examiner interview with the patent examiner.
