Patent Law

Patent Law can be a difficult one to navigate through. That is why you need people are experienced and knowledgeable in the area.

Kings Patent & Trade Marks Attorneys are experts in the field of Patent Law.

A patent is a legal right to exclude others from exploiting an invention for a limited period of time. This right can help you or your business dominate a market, attract investors and serve as leverage in commercial negotiations.

Patents protect inventions, which can include any new and useful device, substance, method or process.  Anything new and involving some ingenuity or exercise of inventive skill may be patentable, including software, microorganisms and pharmaceuticals.  Indeed, it is a common misconception that an invention needs to be complex or a major breakthrough in order to be patentable.  Inventions having simple or small improvements can be patented, provided the improvements result in significant advantages. 

Process of Obtaining a Patent

The process of obtaining a patent starts with a description of the invention known as a “patent specification” with the Patent Office.  A patent specification is a technical / legal document that must not only fully describe your invention but also must satisfy a number of legal requirements.  Therefore, the drafting of a patent specification is best left to the professionals and we at Kings are here to help. 

Once the patent specification if lodged, it is then reviewed by the Patent Office who determine if the document is viable or if changes are needed.

If all the criteria has been met and possible changes have been implemented, then the patent will be granted.
