After the invention disclosure meeting

Just got done sitting down with your patent attorney and explained everything there is about your invention? Wondering what happens next? There are three steps left in preparing your patent application..

Review Claims

First, your patent attorney will draft a set of claims. The claims are a concise description of your inventions that outline what you claim as your invention. Once the attorney drafts your claims, he/she will send it to you for your review and approval.

Review Drawings

Once you have reviewed and approved the claims, your patent attorney will prepare drawings of your invention that conform to the requirements set by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). When the drawings are ready, your attorney will send them to you for review and approval. 

Final Review

Finally, your patent attorney will prepare a full patent application for your invention that includes your claims, drawings, and a detailed description of your invention. He/she will then send the draft of the full patent application to you for your review and approval. Once you review and approve the full application the patent attorney will file your patent application.

That’s it. Once these three steps are complete, your patent application is now filed. Now just to wait for the USPTO to start examining your patent to determine if it is patentable.
