Once a patent application has been filed, and before it is granted by a patent office, it undergoes a strict examination procedure. In some cases, a patent may be granted with few amendments, but these are the exceptions. More usually, the patent examiner will raise formal or substantive objections, and patent attorneys are experienced in overcoming such objections. As with patent drafting, we are able to prosecute your patent application English, French, German. As authorised representatives, we negotiate on your behalf with the Swiss Patent Office or the European Patent Office. We can prosecute Swiss, European or international (PCT) patent applications. Prosecution in non-European countries is handled by our network of carefully selected foreign associates.
