Non-Provisional Patent Application Drafting

Non-provisional patent applications, being the final draft of applications that are filed with the PTOs for examination and subsequent grant, need to be complete in every respect.

A non-provisional application should explicitly claim the invention as broadly as possible while covering all possible embodiments of the invention, disclose the best mode of the invention and various embodiments / applications along with PTO-compliant drawings to enable a person skilled in the art to practice the invention.

To cater to these requirements, at PDC we follow the proven methodology of first drafting the claims of the application and following it up with the remaining sections, i.e., drawings, brief description of drawings, summary of the invention, detailed specifications, advantages of the invention, background, abstract, etc. This process ensures that claims are optimal and specifications fulfil the enablement requirement.

Further, depending on the requirements of our patent attorney OR patent agent clients, we are flexible to draft a complete non-provisional applications or sections thereof.
