Provisional Patent Draft

A provisional patent is a type of patent application that allows inventors to establish an early priority date for their invention. It is a "placeholder" patent application that is filed with the Patent and Trademark Office to establish an early filing date. This is the first step in the patent application process, as it allows inventors to disclose their invention while they continue to work on refining it.

Filing a provisional patent is generally less expensive and less time-consuming and it does not require formal patent claims or as much detail as a non-provisional patent application, allowing inventors to provide a basic description of their invention without having to fully develop all aspects of it.

Provisional patent specification drafting process

Einfolge conducts a comprehensive patent search to ensure that your invention is novel and not already patented before drafting your provisional patent application. Our experts use patent databases, such as PatBase, Google Patents, the USPTO Patent Full-Text and Image Database, and Espacenet, to conduct your search. Once we establish that your invention is novel, we prepare a detailed description of it, including its purpose, how it works, and its unique features. Einfolge’s first step in drafting a provisional patent specification is to fully comprehend the invention, which includes understanding the technical aspects of the invention as well as any potential benefits or advantages it may offer over current existing products or technologies.

We identify the key elements of the invention that make it unique and patentable. Our specification should include enough technical detail about how the invention works, how it is constructed, and how it is used to support the claims made about it. Once the initial draft of the specification is complete, we review and edit it to ensure that it accurately and completely describes the invention. Filing a provisional patent application provides you with a priority date and allows you to use the term "patent pending" while you work on filing a non-provisional patent application.

It's important to note that while a provisional patent application can provide some protection for your invention, it's not a substitute for a non-provisional patent application. Filing a provisional patent application establishes a priority date, but to receive full patent protection, you must file a non-provisional patent application within one year.
