Patent Drafting is the first step in the process of obtaining a patent. Our team at Lexoracle takes a comprehensive approach while drafting and preparing patent applications as it has the tendency to affect the short as well as long-term interests of the client. Patent drafting contains various aspects such as the complete knowledge of the invention, technical subject matter, in-depth knowledge of various laws, a detailed description of the invention, and associates figures/drawings, therefore, it is a tough task. Therefore, Lexoracle works closely with inventors to ensure a smooth patent registration process.
The Patents Act, 2005 suggests that the inventor or his agent/ assignee/ or his legal representative, or his heirs (in case the inventor is deceased) can apply for the patent in the head office of the Patent Office of India. Before we start working on the preparation of patent draft or patent specification, the prior art search, patentability analysis are necessary to identify the state of art technologies. Subsequently, the patent draft is filed at the patent office for review and examination and undergoes an extensive examination at the patent office and only after that it is decided whether a patent will be refused or granted.
The applications received by the patent offices can be divided into two types (national patent applications and International patent applications) based on the type of office at which the fresh application for patent has been filed. National patent applications will always be submitted at the national office of patents, for example, Indian patent office. An international patent application of patent can be filed through the PCT route that is, patent cooperation treaty. The PCT provides a centralized platform of a patent application across multiple countries internationally which is solely operated by the World Intellectual Property Organization. The application filed through this process is called an international patent application which at the later stage gives applicant, an advantage of filing the patent in any of the member countries of the PCT within 31 months from the priority date. An inventor or a company has to be certain about the type of application they prefer to file in accordance with their requirements.
