At TT Consultants, we help clients in preparing Office Action Responses (OAR) and technical instruction letters (with one or more response strategies) for various jurisdictions. 

Drafting Responses to Office Actions enables our clients to overcome the patent examiner’s objections and rejections to the patent application while negotiating claim scope. Our team of Patent Agents and techno-legal experts are well-versed with patent laws and OAR requirements in various jurisdictions and provide strategic amendments and/or arguments.

TTC has expertise in preparing responses to patent office communications such as US Non-Final Office Action, US Final Office Actions, EP search opinions, EP examination reports, JP examination reports, CN examination reports. We further assist our client in preparing claim charts and preparing strategy documents containing multiple strategies to overcome rejections in an Office action.

NON-FINAL OFFICE ACTION

Includes a first evaluation of the patent claims after the filing of a patent application. In the non-final office action, the patent examiner states his/her opinion on the patentability and patent-eligibility of the claims. After a review of the non-final office action, the applicant has the option of amending the claims, the specification, and the drawings to overcome the examiner’s rejections/objections.

FINAL OFFICE ACTION 

The last set of rejections/objections is issued by the examiner after reviewing the applicant’s response to the non-final office action(s). The final office action may include the same rejections as the non-final office action(s) or may include new rejections.

Additionally, our team has expertise in preparing and filing responses to written opinions received during the PCT Chapter I & II stages. An International Search Report (ISR) along with a Written Opinion is issued under the provisions of the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) by an International Search Authority (ISA).
