Strategic Patenting is normally a practice when patent applications are prosecuted with the goal of improving a portfolio’s patent position in a defined technological area.
That area may be relatively broad and require several patents around that sector, or the patents can be targeted on a specific product, service, or company. Whether the goal is to monetize these assets or gain patents for defensive purposes, Strategic Patenting should be a key piece of any larger IP strategy.

Patent Application Drafting
The patent professionals at TechPats are willing to draft patent applications for select inventors and inventions.
The key to good patent claims is a solid initial patent disclosure. Despite the presumed “race to the patent office” in the “First Inventor to File” system, drafting a proper patent application is not an insignificant process and is certainly worth a suitable investment of time and resources.
With our partners, TechPats can draft patent specifications, prosecute patents, and offer guidance for maximizing IP rights for your invention.
Patent prosecution is the process of corresponding with the patent office in the effort to have a patent application granted as a patent. The complex journey requires procedural and substantive knowledge of the patent examination process and should be approached with a patent professional.
Whether the patent applications are acquired or home-grown, TechPats’ patent professionals and subject-matter experts can advise on patent claims and patent application prosecution with the goal of demonstrating potential infringement in the near future.
For select partners, in select technologies, TechPats may be able to collaborate with inventors and companies and advise on issues related to research and development. Whether the goal is to solve a specific problem, implement an innovation with a product or service, or just brainstorm ideas around an area of need, the TechPats team loves a challenge.
