Patentability Opinions

At its most basic level, a patentability opinion considers an invention and its field to determine whether the invention meets the requirement of patentability, i.e., eligible subject matter that is new, useful, and not obvious. But AEON Law isn’t basic. We’re strategic.

For many of our clients, each new product or service can contain dozens or even hundreds of patentable inventions. We work with our clients from the early stages of development to determine not only whether a particular aspect of a new concept is patentable, but also which inventions are bring the most value to the client.

When we provide patentability opinions, our end goal isn’t simply to get a registration from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. We advise our clients on which aspects of their technologies to include in patent applications based on considerations like business strategy, budget, and the client’s field of technology. In fact, our attorneys have been named as inventors on patents where we are the first to recognize some aspect of a client’s technology that should be patented.

Patentability is one of four types of patent opinions we provide, along with non-infringement, freedom-to-operate, and validity. With our advice, clients have the best information to make an educated decision and secure patent protection that helps their businesses grow and keeps infringers at bay.

Let's work together.
