Office Action Responses

What is an Office Action?

Once the patent application is filed, the USPTO examiner will look for prior art and determine whether the specification meets all the requirements for a patent. If not, an official document “office action” will be issued disclosing any issues with your patent application.

Causes of Office Action

You might be thinking that what can be the causes of office actions? Then, here are some reasons that can bring office action for your patent application. 

  • Error in the specification or improper format.
  • The obviousness of invention.
  • Issues with the subject matter.
  • Lack of novelty and industrial applicability.

How do we response to office action?

We at Wissen Research provide an Office Action response which is best favourable to overcome the Patent Examiner’s objections or rejections. We prepare a thorough response to each of the examiner’s objections according to different jurisdictions’ Patent office rules and guidelines. We’ve dealt with a wide range of objections and denials such as USC 101, USC 102, USC 103 and USC 112.

Firstly, we identify the types of issues raised by the examiner, and then we file an appropriate response accordingly by:

  • Applying amendments to claims, specifications and illustrations.
  • Making persuasive arguments that the examiner may have misinterpreted the prior art.
  • Clear distinctions between the subject invention and the prior arts and elaborating by taking reference.
