If the patent application filed by the applicant with the USPTO, receives an office action issued by the USPTO rejecting the claims as not novel and/or obvious in view of the prior art, IP Procure conducts a phone interview with the examiner to advance the prosecution of the application and thereafter files a response to the office action.

IP Procure files trademark applications for marks that applicant’s seeks to register in the USPTO, and files corresponding trademark applications through foreign associates.
We conduct infringement studies to determine if the features of a product or invention read on every element of the claims of unexpired patents, and to determine if a client is potentially free to operate without risk of infringing the identified patents in a particular country.
