Patentability/Novelty Search

A patentability search conducted by Synoptic IP, not only assists the client in determining the scope of patent protection to be sought, but also the approach that may be adopted in drafting the claims.

Although it is not mandatory to conduct a Prior Art Search before filing a patent, we recommend that one should adopt the route of a Prior Art Search before filing the patent for the following reasons:

  • Drafting claims in a much better way
  • Improving defensibility of the future patent

We understand that determining the novelty of an invention is a gradual process that involves not only a rigorous prior art (patent and/or non-patent) search, but also an in-depth analysis of the closely related patents to understand how claims of the invention can be designed around.

Our state of the art search methodology differentiate us from our competitors and is one of the reason for an impressive client return rate of more than 90%. Write us at to know about our unique search methodology.
