Was your idea rejected by the patent office? What does this mean? Does it mean that your invention is dead in the water? Does it mean that you should let your idea go?
I'm attorney John Rizvi, and I've been representing inventors in responding to patent office rejections for over 25 years. Almost every patent that has ever been granted was initially rejected by the patent office. But don't let a rejection force you to give up on getting your patent. It is possible, and maybe even likely that the patent examiner is wrong. Maybe they don't even really understand your invention. They don't know what's unique about it. Perhaps all it takes is some clarification about the novelty of your idea in order to change their mind. At my law firm we offer a Second Opinion Office Action Review. This is for inventors that have received the rejection of their patent. The review is performed by former examiners from the US Patent and Trademark Office that now work on my team full time. What does this mean? Well, it's like having a professor tutor you for your exam, or like knowing someone in the HR department of the company that you want to work for. Who else could have better insight as to what your examiner wants and how we can best persuade them, than a former Patent Office examiner himself?
It is an amazing advantage and it almost seems unfair. So how can our second opinion Office Action Review help you? It can provide you all your regular patent attorney with a blueprint of the most persuasive arguments to overcome your assigned examiner's rejections; or if we believe your examiner has a strong case and it's unlikely to change their mind, we'll give it to you straight. After all, why waste your time and money on responding to a rejection that stands a snowball's chance in hell of succeeding? Also, if you like what we say in our Second Opinion, and want us to take over your case, we can do that, too. Call me, attorney John Rizvi, the Patent Professor.
