Patent Drafting Process

A patent application is written as a legal document to protect various features of a new innovation. Such features are protected by way of patent claims, which are technical in nature. So, a patent application is written as a legal document describing technical features, which is a result of a strong collaboration between an inventor and a patent attorney. According to publicly available statistics, approx. 60% of total patents filed reach the grant or registration stage. Out of those granted patents, only 30-40% are able to retrieve commercial returns.

Therefore, it becomes extremely critical to ensure that a good quality patent application with strong set of claims is filed at the first step. So here are 5 key steps to prepare a strong patent application:

  • Spend time in preparing an invention disclosure form
  • Capture all details of the invention properly
  • Clearly differentiate between the advantages and features of the invention
  • Prepare block diagrams and sketches to represent the invention
  • List down all possible future improvements of the invention

To read good quality patent claims, you can search for patents granted to companies like Apple or Microsoft.
