Our comprehensive proofreading process:

1. Compare the issued patent's front page information with prosecution history.
a) Confirmation of Inventor and Title Information from the Oath/Declaration as filed; if discrepancies exist, ADS, Spec Amendments, Request to Correct the OFR are checked.
b) Confirmation of priority information from the Oath/Declaration and/or OFR and/or the PTO (PAIR) "Continuity Data" tab.
c) Verification of any amendments to the Abstract.

2. Cross verification of references found on Front page of patent with examiner and applicant references (cited in 1449 and (SB08) A/B).

3. Visual verification of the drawing to ensure that correct drawings appear in the issued, as originally submitted and/or any Replacement Drawings submitted.

4. Comparison of issued patent claims with "latest claim amendment filed" including "latest Examiner's amendment".

5. Paragraph by paragraph comparison of the ‘Specification as issued’ and the ‘Specification as filed’, keeping into consideration that any Specification Amendments during prosecution were included in the issued patent.
