Claim review service
—Conformity with Japanese Patent Law—
We review conformity of your patent applications with the Japanese Patent Law. Japan Patent Office has the criterion in inventive step similar to the United States and European ones. However, there are some different rules at the examination stage.
Therefore, our attorneys review and clarify your inventions to conform to Japanese patent practice.
First, our attorneys analyze and clarify features of your inventions, then, change inappropriate descriptions in view of Japanese patent practice and brush up your claims for examination.
We highly recommend this claim review before the examination starts.
Of course, you may wish to amend your claims in response to office actions. However, in Japanese patent practice, options for amending your claims will be limited as the examination proceed. This is why we recommend our claim review service for your patent applications before examination.
