At Sagacious IP, we draft patent applications not just to meet the requirements of the patent office, but also make the draft future-proof by making tweaks to the ideas, to ensure broadest possible coverage, so that it can’t be bypassed by a third-party entity. Our subject matter experts work in tandem with the patent drafter to ensure that the patent application covers all the possible variations and is correct from a technical perspective.
Patent drafting is a process of writing patent descriptions and claims, which are integral components of any patent application. It focuses on determining how to patent an idea. Once a patent is issued, the draft acts as the specification part of the document.
According to the WIPO, it is preferable to draft the claims before specifications because it allows the patent agent to determine which terms require a description in the specification. In the majority of patent applications, patent claims comprise the first step in writing the application.
