Patent Search, Drafting & Filing in USPTO

Patent drafting is a very crucial aspect of the entire patent application process because on your application hinges the entire success of your patent. Your patent application defines the boundaries of your product or the invention you are working on. Therefore, at Brainiac IP Solutions we take the drafting of your patent application very seriously.

A critical thing about your patent application is that too narrow a scope increases competition and wider boundaries may destroy the patentability of your patent. Many a time, building and maintaining a good team requires more effort, and consistent output from such a team is a problem. Precisely this is the reason why companies of all dimensions prefer to outsource patent application drafting work to law firms and not to KPOs with clear expectation of quality and almost no burden of training and sustaining a big team.
