We customize the drafting process as per the filing jurisdiction and the drafting guidelines of your organization. We work closely with the in-house and / or outside attorneys to understand their process and preferences. We also maintain playbooks to capture individual preferences and consistently deliver good quality patent applications.


We focus on developing a strong patent portfolio by ensuring appropriate coverage for each invention. Our domain experts anticipate potential opportunities in the technology and ensure the broadest possible coverage for the patent keeping the future development of the technology into perspective.



Time has become a critical factor in patent filing as most countries now follow first-to-file system and a delay in filing may result in conceding the right to obtain a patent. We ensure quick turnaround time by assigning dedicated team members who regularly coordinate with both the inventor and the attorney so that the draft passes through each check point without any delay.

Defensive publication

The drafting process described above can also be adapted to the drafting of defensive publications. Our Research Disclosure service offers to establish an invention as prior art preventing others from patenting the idea.

You can also publish your defensive publications on our Research disclosure platform by submitting a defensive publication below.

Who we are

Over the last 50 years more than 600 editions of the Research Disclosure journal have been published, containing tens of thousands of technical disclosures from all areas of science and technology.
