PRIOR ART SEARCH

Novelty is one of the most paramount criteria that decide whether an invention can be considered to be patentable. We conduct the patentability search not only to assists the client in determining the scope of patent protection to be sought, but withal the approach that may be adopted in drafting the patent specification. We provide a detailed patentability analysis and opinion by considering various aspects relating to patentability of an invention, thus helps to understand the scope of protection that might be derived if a patent is granted to the invention. Our extensive experience in conducting patentability searches for inventions relating to a wide array of technology domains and good understanding of the patent law, enable us to provide valuable advice to our clients..

Our Freedom to Operate / Clearance or Right-to-Use Search identifies the third party enforceable patents and patent publications which helps the client in assessing the risk of potential infringement in a particular jurisdiction. FTO study is a proactive step towards mitigating patent risks, and is considered by numerous technology companies as an essential study that has to be conducted prior to introducing a product to the market. Product specification / invention disclosure are compared with the claim language of the patents. We conducts a comprehensive analysis of all relevant patents, applications published and non-patent literature to defend the "Freedom-to-Operate" status of the technology in utilization with reverence to all blocking patent claims. Legal status of the enforced patents and patent publications is also provided with this report.

Our State of the Art Search services are sought by clients who wish to identify the status of any current developments in their technology of interest. Our search covers US, EPO, WIPO, Japan, Korea, China, Canada and hundreds of other foreign jurisdictions.

Further, antecedent and enablement issues, non-compliance to obligation of disclosure etc. are withal analyzed to make the report more concrete. Further, we punctiliously scope the search to fixate on the most pertinent sources.

Infringement Analysis identifies the products whose technology infringes the technology of the client’s patent. We understand the criticality of infringement search and analysis for companies, and address the same by providing both, literal infringement and / or doctrine of equivalence, which helps to determine whether a product or a process infringes upon an subsisting claim, with our opinion relating to infringement.
