A large percentage of issued patents contain errors. A patent is enforceable as it is granted. Therefore errors have a bearing on the enforceability of a patent. This makes proofreading of an issued patent a critical prosecution step.
Clairvolex offers meticulous and error-free Patent Proofreading services. We have a well trained team of proofreaders, who use a combination of electronic and manual proofreading processes, to deliver high quality results. Technical quality support to the team is provided by experienced patent attorneys, who also make recommendations for filing of the Certificate of Correction.
Typically our clients only need to send us the issued patent number. Our team can access the copy of issued patent and the file history documents from the USPTO (wherever available). The proofreading process takes into account all office actions, amendments and other changes made to the application post filing.
