The written description is one of the most important elements of any patent, impacting not only overall patentability but the validity of every claim, while also serving as the front line of defense against invalidity challenges. And that description starts with the inventor, not the attorney drafting the patent.

Yet the language of the inventor and the patent attorney are different, and failure to adequately bridge this gap can result in weaker patent protection, delays, and higher cost. This problem is especially critical when the inventor is working on an emerging technology, often requiring the patent attorney to spend a great deal of time – and billable hours — figuring out the fundamental principles of the invention.

To help IP practitioners and TTOs ensure maximum protection while saving time and money in the patent drafting process, we’ve teamed up with Peter Hanik, Founder and President of Pretium Innovation, LLC, for this practical webinar: Bridge the Gap Between Inventor and IP Attorney: How to Bullet-Proof Your Patents with Airtight Written Descriptions, scheduled for October 24th. Mr. Hanik will share his proven method for ensuring inventors provide the right information, in the right way with the right level of detail and background, so the patent attorney can translate it into the strongest possible patent, while saving time and expense.
