Fast Track Examination of Applications

Many patent offices have large and growing backlogs of unexamined applications. Delays of up to three or more years or more before an application is even taken up for first examination are relatively common.

Hart IP understand that final patentability decisions and issued patents may be more beneficial to your company's business objectives than patent applications in unreasonably large queues that take years to whittle down.  

By examining internal goals, Hart IP can assist corporations and organizations with making effective and economic choices about fast tracking the examination of applications through (a) Petitions for Accelerated Examination; (b) the Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH); and/or (c) the Patent Cooperation Treaty PPH (PCT/PPH).
