Patentability or Novelty Searching

Patentability or Novelty searches focus on locating the references that, based on your disclosure, may be used as prior art in a §102 or a §103 rejection by an Examiner. Having the strongest art in your field gives you the information you need to continue in a fruitful direction with your research and development. If you are a drafting attorney, the relevant prior art we provide gives you examples of allowed claims in the art and helps you decide how narrow or broad your initial claims may be drafted, to give the highest possibility of a speedy allowance.
