Patent Prosecution Services

What are Patent Prosecution Services?

Patent Prosecution is representing your invention before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). It is the conducting of communications with the USPTO regarding the examination of a patent application, or a patent. Most frequently it is things like, letters to address any rejections or objections made regarding a patent application, amendments, new/revised claims, or the conducting of examiner interviews. At Carson Patents patent prosecution help is the fourth step to patenting, contact us.

  • Restriction Practice (proper responses to restriction office actions).
  • Requests for Reconsideration & Appeals.
  • Petitions to Make Special (Accelerated Examination, Prioritized Examination, Patent Prosecution Highway – PPH).
  • Requests for Continued Examination.
  • Supplemental Examination.

We prosecute all kinds and types of patents

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. Carson Patents highly recommends patent practitioner help for responses to USPTO Office Actions.

Amendments

Amendments to patent applications become necessary for many reasons. A complete response to an office action can make an amendment necessary. If updates, corrections, and explanations are needed, submitting an amendment is necessary. Patent applications need to fully disclose how to make and use the invention. The application documents need to be clear, complete, and in proper form. Details matter. Carson Patents provides all patent services for writing and submitting amendments for pending patent applications. Contact us to get an amendment written, or to start the steps to patent for your invention.

New & Revised Claims

Submitting new claims, and revising and resubmitting existing claims occurs as part of office action responses. Also, after filing, it may become necessary or desirable to submit new or revised claims in a patent application. Claims must be in proper form, not indefinite, and supported by the written description and the drawings. Carson Patents provides writing new and revised patent claims. Contact us to get new or revised claims written for your pending patent, or to start the steps to patent for your invention.

Examiner Interviews

Examiner interviews are conducted for many reasons. Always for the purpose of moving the application forward as quickly as possible. Frequently, the reason revolves around sharing understanding of the invention, discussing the patentability of the claims, or to determine election options after a restriction office action. Interviews can help determine the best way to respond to an office action. Carson Patents highly recommends patent practitioner help for examiner interviews, contact us.
