Patentability Searches

A thorough search is critical to steering the application to those inventive features most likely to be considered patentable by the examiner, and to ensuring that the necessary support is included in the application. We work with an independent searcher who is an MIT trained physicist.

Decades of Patent search Experience

When a patent application is submitted to the United States Patent and Trademark Office, an examiner will complete a comprehensive and thorough search to determine if an invention is already known. As such, conducting a patentability search before filing a patent application is a critical first step in the application process, as preparing a patent application can be a costly endeavor and a search provides some indication of whether the money will be well spent.  

Alternatively, investors often want to see a completed patent search before making an investment in a new idea. At Stiennon & Stiennon, we offer quality legal services, including patent searches, designed to decrease risk and increase the chances of attracting potential investors.
