Patents Accelerated Examination, How To

How to Increase the Lifetime of Your Patent

A patent can remain in force up to 20 years from the date of filing the application. This, of course, provided that all renewal fees are timely paid.

So the arithmetic is simple: If you get a patent granted in 5 years, then you may have a maximum patent protection of 15 years. Unfortunately, there are applicants who are granted a patent 11 years after filing; the may benefit from the patent protection 9 years at most.

The sooner you get a patent granted, the longer the patent protection you can enjoy.

Accelerated Examination for Earlier Patent Grant

In the United States there are several possible venues to speed up the examination. We can advise you on choosing a preferred venue, better suited for your situation.

In Israel there also are several possible venues to an accelerated examination.

Patent offices only accept part of the requests for accelerated examination, because there are many requests for it and faster examination increases the workload at the patent office.

If a patent is granted in one country, this may help you get patents granted in other countries as well, based on agreements between countries.

Our office has achieved success in patent grants within two years and even one year. Using accelerated examination, you also improve your chances of passing the examination, to get a patent gratened to you.
