PATENT OFFICE ACTIONS

After the patent application is filed with the USPTO, a patent examiner is assigned to your patent application.  The examiner will review of your application first to determine if all of the required formalities are met, then second to determine if your application is novel in view of the existing patent applications that exists.  If the examiner finds a reason to object or reject your application, he will issue what is called an Office Action. 

Typically the first office action is not received for several months after the filing of the patent application.  In some cases Office Actions will not issue for well over a year from the filing date depending upon the backlog of the USPTO and the efficiency of the particular examiner assigned to your application.  

As your attorney, all Office Actions will goes directly to our office for our review.  We will review the Office Action and contact you to discuss the scope of the rejection and how we intend to overcome the rejection if retained by you.  Office Actions are fairly common and you should expect at least one Office Action especially for utility patent applications.  We are very successfull in overcoming the rejections by either drafting arguments against the examiners rejections, or by amending the application and claims to overcome the rejection.  In some cases, we have found that conducting a telephonic interview with the examiner to be very useful to overcome rejections.

Even if we have not drafted your original patent application, feel free to call our office for a quote for our response to your office action.
