Searching global databases for similar patents

When preparing to file patent applications, it is important to be thorough, and part of that involves looking for registered or pending patents that are very similar to your invention. Failing to complete this due diligence could not only lead to your patent application being rejected by local and regional patent offices, but also to legal accusations of infringement. By leveraging decades of patent law expertise and employing the most cost-efficient legal processes, Dennemeyer can help your organization ensure the success of its inventions at the trademark office and beyond.

Too many patents fail due to a simple omission: not searching for, and taking into consideration, all the patents that might be similar to an invention. Free access to patent search tools is insufficient for anything but the most basic searches—if the searches are even current and accurate. Let Dennemeyer be your guide—search patents with us to expedite your patent's prosecution and minimize the risk of infringement.
