Top 3 Reasons to Invest in Professional Patent Proofreading

As a patent infringement analysis expert, Legal Advantage strongly recommends examining your patent application in close detail before submitting it. Proofreading is a must because even small errors can have a major impact. Your patent application must be able to withstand scrutiny and it needs to present a strong case, which is why we suggest consulting with an experienced patent proofreading company like us.

As a part of the proofreading project, we verify the content of the patent application that was submitted to the USPTO at the time of filing, with the issued copy of the PTO at the time of grant. We ensure to verify the entire prosecution history to consider all the amendments filed either by the applicant or proposed by the examiner to verify with the issued copy. We prepare a report that details the differences between the authorized copy to issue vs the issued copy. Subsequently, a ‘certificate of correction’ document is prepared with the identified errors that is ready to submit at the PTO.
