Patent Drafting & Drawings 

To protect your ideas and innovations, they have to be wrapped up in a patent document; that’s when the drafting of a patent comes into play. 

Drafting of a patent is a techno-legal document that describes your innovation in a detailed manner, along with the legal obligations set by the inventor in a given jurisdiction. It covers technical as well as legal aspects of the invention and has to be drafted perfectly. 

The contents of the patent specification include the field of invention, a description, a summary of the invention, references to illustrations, an abstract, and claims that are also incorporated in the specification that defines the scope of the invention.

It is required to be included in the patent drawing application, making it an integral part of the process of applying for a patent and one of the procedure’s many components. A patent drawing is a graphic picture of your creation that helps you illustrate how it functions and why it is distinctive in contrast to other inventions that are already available on the market.

A patent drawing search is a search to find prior art that might be relevant to your invention and therefore prevent you from obtaining a valid patent on your invention in certain countries or jurisdictions.

The complete and provisional specification

The drafting of the patent can take the form of either a comprehensive specification or a tentative specification. Someone who is knowledgeable about both the technical aspects of the invention and the legal facets of the patenting process is best suited to write a specification.

When there are not enough details available to file a complete specification for a patent, a provisional specification should be drafted. It is important to keep in mind that the entire specification needs to be written within a year of the date on which the provisional application was submitted.
