Claim Amendment Study

Want to get more value out of your patent? We can help.

This type of study helps in increasing the monetary value of your patents by suggesting claim refinements. These claim refinements are suggested to bring new products (launched post the filling date of the subject patent) into the scope of the amended claims.

How to Get Broader and Good Quality Patents

How we have helped our client:

Helped a Visual search start-up expand their patent portfolio via claim amendments based on some unused portions in spec. This led to the showcase that their patents target AR-related tech along with Visual search. And helped in fetching more value for the company in the sale offer.
Helped  inventors in growing their patent families via claim amendments based on new product features being launched into the market. These curated amended claims lead to the faster grant of the continuations at the same, assured strong reads once the continuations got granted. And helped in signing up more licensees for their patents.
Helped a Department Head, at a major Chinese Telecom Company – in making patents in their portfolio more valuable via filing continuations with amended claims to get more products under the scope of the patent family. This helped the client convince his board that they are creating valuable patents.

Don’t keep questions to yourself:

Suggestions looks really good, will it be acceptable?

Yes. Every suggestion for amendment is based on what is supported in the patent specification. We believe in evidence-based research because that what all is needed.

Suggestions for claim amendments are good, but will it pass through the examiner’s scrutiny?

It will, the reason is – we carefully craft the claim amendments keeping in mind that it can overcome the rejections provided by the examiner during prosecution of the other granted patent in the family.

Claim amendments were granted, but now they are not overlapping on the target product.

That won’t happen.
Because we prepare the mapping before we suggest the amendments in the claim. This assures return-on-investment or help you take actions before only when there is a return.

Well prosecution of the newly amended claims could be really daunting?

Not Really. Partly because we craft claims amendments while keeping in mind not to touch the novel aspect of the already granted patent. It makes it easier for the examiner to grant the claims since the already identified references (examiner cited references for the already granted family member) will not be any threat.

  • I had no idea how complicated and complex a patentability search and features list development was going to be. Jeevan and the GreyB team were very helpful and forthcoming in creating a good template and study for my product needs. Their search was thorough and well documented and provides me with great value as an SME. I think that their study has given me a competitive edge and that I will successfully accomplish my patent registration at a lower cost now.
