Patentability Determination with Report and Consultation.

Patentability Study leads to a determination as to whether any claims in a US patent may be valid. As part of the this study, a Search is conducted which discovers patents, patent applications, and non-patent literature. These are reviewed to determine whether an invention covered by the claims was anticipated by anything discovered during the Search. If it was the claims may not be valid. US law does permit exceptions. So a Patentability Study by a qualified patent practitioner is advisable. 

Any Study undertaken by Carson Patents includes the Search, and a Written report on the Search and reasoning for conclusions on whether the claims are valid. Carson Patents also provides a consultation to discuss the Patentability Study with you, consider your questions, and advise you on ways forward.
