Patent Application Drafting
Chadeayne LLC assists inventors in preparing excellent patent applications. Our expertise in application drafting ensures that our clients get the most property for their ideas. The firm’s application drafting services differ significantly from our competitors in two important ways. First, Chadeayne LLC works with inventors to grow the invention during the application drafting process. Second, we draft our client’s patent applications with an eye towards patent prosecution. As a result of these two differences, we aim to create broader applications with a higher likelihood of being allowed by the patent office
Growing the Invention while Drafting the Application
Chadeayne LLC excels at helping inventors grow their inventions throughout the application drafting process. While many patent firms transcribe an inventor’s idea into a properly formatted application, Chadeayne LLC uses the application drafting process as an opportunity to expand on the inventor’s idea. Just as we seek to expand our client’s invention when drafting claims, we look for opportunities to create value through the rest of the application drafting process.
As scientific experts, we understand technology better than lawyers. By understanding our client’s invention better than other firms, we identify opportunities for expanding our client’s ideas. As experts in patent law, we use those opportunities to expand our client’s intellectual property.
Thinking about Law while Writing about Science
In order to maintain the right to a patent, the applicant must meet a variety of legal requirements. The patent application must completely describe the invention and teach the public how to make and use it. The patent applicant must also meet the United State Patent Office’s formal requirements for prosecuting patent applications.
At Chadeayne LLC, we work with inventors to draft patent applications which satisfy all legal requirements and also incorporate enough flexibility to protect later improvements. We do this by searching for opportunities to describe broader aspects of the invention, often by analyzing its physical composition and properties. Describing the broader inventive contribution provides two significant advantages: (1) protecting against competing products with minor variations; and (2) having the option to change the commercial product while maintaining patent protection.
