From performing patent searches to drafting patent applications, to be able to detail out the technical arguments to characterize an invention in view of the prior art to overcome novelty and/or inventive step objections from an Examiner, the technical domain expertise is fundamental.
While performing patent searches, the domain knowledge and the in-depth understanding of the technology in a particular field allows for sieving through thousands of result sets quickly by pinpointing of the prior art and/or the different features of an invention.
While drafting and prosecuting a patent application, a different skillset and expertise is required for certain technical fields including the knowledge of the rules for the different technical fields with the respective patent offices. The Patent office generally has guidelines issued with respect to prosecuting /drafting patent applications with respect to certain fields of technology. These guidelines are usually based on the law of the land including the latest patent jurisprudence in the particular jurisdiction. For instance, having a knowledge of the guidelines detailed out in the MPEP, in consonance with the Alice decision and the Federal circuit court of appeals decisions on this subject matter, helps to draft and prosecute applications in the United States effectively. An in-depth understanding and knowledge of the laws, guidelines, the practical aspects of the different patent offices combined with the technical expertise of the different domains allows the Patents specialists and attorneys at OutsourceIP to provide the quality services in a cost-effective manner with quick turnaround times.
