An enforceable Patent is key to effective Commercialization/Out-Licensing of any technology. No matter how ground breaking a technology is, if the description of the technical subject matter is not enabling or fails to disclose all necessary embodiments, or even, if the claims are narrowly drafted and do not gain support from the specification, the worth of the technology could be insignificant.
We at K&K, understand and appreciate the due importance of a good patent specification and therefore, have a dedicated team of patent drafters, who have, for Fortune 500 Corporates and Leading Global IP Law Firms, drafted comprehensive, numerous and exclusive patents.

Patent Prosecution refers to a process of interaction between an applicant/representative and a patent office with respect to the patent, in order to best defend an inventor’s rights. It involves high levels of negotiation with the patent office and therefore has high-impact value for the client. K&K truly understands the inherent value of a patent and the role played by this prosecution process. We therefore undertake preparation and analysis of responses for patent applications, detailed discussions with the Examiner, thorough and effective strategy for and attending hearings before the Controller, among other things. We’ll be with you all the way.
The preparation of responses during the prosecution phase necessitates an in-depth analysis of the invention along with the prior arts, taking into consideration the patentability criteria. The First Examination Report (FER) is issued ordinarily within 12 months of filing the Request for Examination, provided the Application is published in the Indian Patent Journal.
