Patent Search

Is your invention new and inventive? We search patent and/or non-patent literature published before your invention. This provides information to help determine the viability of your invention thus helping you make an informed decision on whether should invest in filing a patent application or not.


For a patent to be successfully granted, it must disclose a new invention. A patentability search (also known as a novelty or pre-filing search) aims to uncover documents in the patent and non-patent literature that are similar or identical to your proposed invention and may prevent your patent application from being granted.


Patent search is conducted to ascertain whether the proposed novel and inventive details of the product have been disclosed in the public domain. The results can also help with drafting the patent application.


Our patent search services can be tailored, which allows us to meet individual client needs.
