Patent Drafting, Filing & Prosecution
An effective patent strategy takes into account how new patent applications are drafted, where patent applications are filed and how patent applications are prosecuted to achieve granted patent rights. The objective is to secure the grant of patent rights that will be an important asset for your business and give you an advantage over your competitors.
