Patentability Search / Novelty Search

A patentability search is conducted to determine if an invention meets the requirements of novelty, usefulness, and non-obviousness. This is the most common yet one of the most essential searches, and needs to be carried out irrespective of the assurance of patentability. The search not only makes the application process easier but also helps to strengthen the invention against issues of validity.

Patentability / novelty searches are usually performed prior to the preparation of the patent application to determine if your intellectual property or invention is unique or novel enough to be patented. Our patentability / novelty searches cover all of the major published literature as well as other relevant literature.
