Design Patent Prosecution Services

What is Patent Prosecution?

Patent Prosecution occurs after an invention is patent pending. It is representing the invention before the United States Patent and Trademark (USPTO). It is the conducting of communications with the USPTO regarding the examination of a patent application, or a patent. For Design Applications, it is most frequently letters to address any rejections or objections made regarding an application. Carson Patents can provide all our Design Patent Prosecution Services online. Contact us for prosecution help, or to start the steps to patent.

Patent Prosecution also includes:

  • US Design to Hague International Industrial Design Applications.
  • Hague to US Applications.
  • Requests for Reconsideration & Appeals.
  • Petitions to Make Special (Accelerated Examination, Prioritized Examination, Patent Prosecution Highway – PPH).

Responses to Office Actions.

Responding to an office action is basically writing a letter back to the patent office. It includes responding to, and addressing, all issues raised in the letter from the examiner. Office action issues frequently include both rejections and objections. Both must be responded to properly and completely. We highly recommend patent practitioner help for responses to all USPTO Office Actions. Contact us for prosecution help, or to start the steps to patent.
