For US Patent & Trademarks Prosecution

US IDS Preparation

Our IDS team helps patent applicants fulfill their duty of disclosure in a timely, accurate, and cost-effective manner, including:

  • Search all publicly available PTO websites to gather the material prior art across all patent families related to an application.

  • Cross-check all references identified during the search with previously submitted references to identify new or uncited prior art.

  • Prepare ready-to-file IDS and relevant supporting forms.

  • Download and compile PDF copies of required references to facilitate easier submission.

Data Validation
  • Update records or validate the details of any recently transferred Intellectual Property assets with client docketing systems or PTOs.

  • We verify the legitimacy of IP records by comparing data pertaining to US / non-US cases against public data sources or through local counsel.

Patent Proofreading and Certificate of Correction Filing

Over 94% of issued patents contain errors that affect their enforceability. We offer high-quality proofreading and Certificate of Correction filing services across Patent Applications, Published Patent Applications, and Issued Patents. Our professional proofreaders use combined electronic and manual proofreading processes, delivered with technical quality support from experienced patent attorneys.

Patent and Design Drawings

Our patent illustration team creates high-quality drawings that meet PTO requirements at an affordable cost. We set ourselves apart by combining knowledge of USPTO, EPO, PCT and other jurisdictions with a dedication to technical precision and fluency in advanced design software. Working from hand-drawn sketches, blueprints, photographs, or other descriptions - our team delivers Patent Illustrations ready to file with the PTO.

Office Action Response Shells

We offer the creation of Office Action Response Shells (OARS) to help patent prosecutors get a head start on preparing detailed Office Action Responses. These non-technical Shells consist of a base template with headers, footers, and boilerplate language  specific to client needs, as well as form paragraphs introducing objections raised, the latest copy of the claims with status identifiers, and other relevant details.

Patent Opposition Watch

Our highly skilled IP Admin team helps maintain a watch on key competitor portfolios to provide valuable market intelligence to our clients. We are able to provide asset-level insights into prosecution status at the PTO.

File Wrapper Review

We offer preparation and review of patent application file wrappers. This wrapper - documenting all correspondence between the patent office and the applicant across the entire transaction - aids in decisions on licensing, litigation, infringement analysis, and buying and selling of patents.

Patent Term Adjustment

We use a semi-automated process to calculate a patent’s expiration date in order to determine if the patent term adjustment published by the USPTO is correct. Our proven process leverages continuity, terminal disclaimer, maintenance fee, OAR extensions, along with other data points - to ensure a comprehensive and accurate analysis.

We partnered with Clairvolex on a number of projects when I was with White & Case. We have been amazed to see the Clairvolex team’s level of Intellectual Property expertise. I am looking forward to our continued partnership with Allen & Overy teams for our trailblazing clients around the world.”
