Patent Searches

A patent search is a quick look through the U.S. and some foreign (patent databases) for prior patent publications that describe the same or similar invention.  Copies of pertinent references discovered in the search are provided to the client, often with an opinion as to what scope of patent protection, if any, might be available for the  invention in light of what was found in the search. One can conceivably have any publicly available information from anywhere in the world held against one’s patent application. A patent search is a quick economical tool for determining whether an expensive patent application should be pursued.
