Why is a Patent Attorney Essential to write your Patent Specification?
Drafting of patent specifications is a complicated process. It is not child’s play. It requires a professional like a patent attorney who has the necessary skills and qualifications for representing clients like you to obtain your patents and acting on your behalf in all legal matters connected with patent law.
There is a feeling among some clients that patent attorneys are not necessary and that they can save much money by writing out their patent specifications themselves. What these clients do not know is that the patent attorneys are highly trained with an engineering or scientific background. They will not be able to qualify for Patent Attorney registration if they did not have scientific and technological knowledge. Clients do need these attorneys as they are just the people who can describe their inventions in a type of document specification which will help them get exclusive rights in terms of what has been claimed and specified in that document.
There is a high possibility that in writing out a patent specification, inventors can commit errors that may result in making that patent void. This is definitely not wise considering that the expense for filing and obtaining a patent is less when compared to the sum that is needed to create and market that particular invention. So, clients cannot be penny wise pound foolish and accept the fact that professional patent attorneys have spent many years training, writing and even opposing or prosecuting patent applications.
A patent attorney can extract the information about your new product or invention out of you and translate into the legal parlance that is commonly used in a patent specification. The role of this professional attorney is to disclose your invention or your latest product in a positive way to accentuate its principal unique quality and make it patent worthy and distinct. It is always advisable for the clients or companies to give complete information that could be made available in connection with the invention. The patent attorneys have to know about all the nuances to obtain the patent for that invented product.
