Patent Proofreading

Patent proofreading identifies and corrects inconsistencies that would otherwise go unnoticed. The scope of a patent can be erroneous. The scope of a claim can be erroneous. There may be grammar errors, there may be errors in the enabling invention. There may be errors in defining the constituents of the drawings invention. As a service, we provide a comprehensive report showing any errors, discrepancies, and suggestions for correction, as well as a certificate of correction (if needed). Proofreading by our professional proofreaders identifies errors and omissions early on.

It is possible to proofread a patent application at multiple stages, such as at the application filing stage, after an application has been published, before the grant of the patent, and after the grant of the patent, as well as at the PCT application.
