An enforceable Patent is the key to effective Commercialization/Out-Licensing of any technology. No matter how good a technology is, if the description of the technical subject matter is not enabling or fails to disclose all necessary embodiments, and in case the claims are narrowly drafted and do not gain support from the specification, the worth of the technology is 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 numerous patents and improved their skills by deliberation with experienced and renounced patent drafters.
