Before filing for a patent, it’s crucial to conduct a thorough patent search to ensure that your invention is truly novel and non-obvious. As a patent attorney, I often see inventors make the mistake of skipping this step, only to have their patents denied later on.

A patent search involves researching existing patents and patent applications to determine whether your invention is truly novel and non-obvious. This can be a time-consuming process, but it’s essential to ensure that your patent application has the best chance of being granted.

Additionally, a patent search can help you identify potential infringement issues and avoid costly legal disputes down the road. If you’re unsure how to conduct a patent search, a patent attorney can assist you in navigating the process.
