Examination

Patent examination and prosecution before the Patent Office is a complex legal proceeding, comparable to an ex parte court proceeding, that can take a significant amount of time to complete in even the most expeditious of cases.  Patent prosecution may require amendments to your application, arguments opposing rejections based on federal court opinions, petitions, examiner interviews, the submission of affidavits and expert witness declarations, appeals to the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), as well as a wide variety of other affidavits, responses, and submissions.  There are many patent practitioners who are licensed, yet who have insufficient experience to properly navigate this complex legal proceeding.
