AIA Best Practices: A Holistic Approach to Patent Preparation and Prosecution
Since the passage of the America Invents Act (AIA) many things have changed, including some very basic advice given to clients. It used to be commonplace to advise clients that it was a best practice to do a patent search, identify what the patentable invention most likely was going to be, get things in order, then take time to file a well thought out the patent application.
Things have changed. Innovators now must rush to the Patent Office in order to win the race created by the first to file system. But a patent is not a malleable document susceptible to enlargement post-filing, so a coordinated strategy must be put in place and effectively communicated to the client so the client can buy into and approve the plan.
