Patent Drafting/Preparation

An enforceable Patent is the key to effective CoM & Mercialization/Out-Licensing of any technology. No matter how good a technology is, if the description of the technical subject matter is not enabling or fails to disclose all necessary embodiments, and in case the claims are narrowly drafted and do not gain support from the specification, the worth of the technology is insignificant.

We at M & M, understand and appreciate the due importance of a good patent specification and therefore have a dedicated team of patent drafters, who have, for Fortune 500 Corporates and leading global IP Law Firms, drafted numerous patents and improved their skills by deliberation with experienced and renounced patent drafters.

Patent Prosecution

Patent Prosecution refers to a process of interaction between an applicant/representative and a patent office with respect to the patent. Patent prosecution process involves high level of negotiation with the patent office and therefore has high-impact value for the client. Manik Luthra (M & M) truly understands the inherent value of a patent and the role played by the prosecution process. M & M therefore undertakes preparation and analysis of responses for patent applications, discussions with the Examiner, preparations for and attending hearings before the Controller. The preparation of responses during the prosecution phase requires an in-depth analysis of the invention along with the prior arts taking into consideration the patentability criterions. The First Examination Report (FER) is issued ordinarily within 12 months of filing Request for Examination, provided the Application is published at the Indian Patent Journal. Our prosecution services include:

1. Drafting of Responses to Examination Reports.
2. Strategizing amendments and arguments for the patent application for maximizing impact.
3. Technical Analysis of Examination Report.
4. Technical Analysis of Cited Prior Arts.
