Non-Provisional Utility Patent Application (Regular Patent Application)

A non-provisional utility patent application is examined by a USPTO Patent Examiner, who evaluates whether the invention meets the requirements for patentability. Axenfeld Law prepares and files high-quality non-provisional patent applications, advocating for clients throughout the examination process. We can also explore ways to expedite the examination process if desired.

A non-provisional utility patent application is examined by a Patent Examiner at the USPTO and, if it meets all patentability requirements, may be issued as an enforceable U.S. patent. A regular application must include claims, drawings (if applicable), and an oath or declaration signed by the inventor(s).

U.S. Capitol
After filing a non-provisional utility patent application, a Patent Examiner familiar with your invention’s technology examines it. The Examiner determines whether your invention is eligible for patent protection and the scope of your patent claims. The aim is for the Examiner to allow your patent application, so it can become an enforceable patent after the Issue Fee is paid.

At Axenfeld Law, our goal is to prepare and file a high-quality patent application that positions it for a favorable first examination by the USPTO. We will then vigorously advocate — based on patent laws and the specifics of your technological advancements — for your patent application’s allowance and conversion into an enforceable U.S. Patent. This may involve amending the claims, discussing your application with the Patent Examiner at the USPTO in Alexandria, Virginia, or, in rare cases, filing an appeal with the Patent Trial and Appeal Board or the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
