Patent Drafting

The patent specification is a techno-legal document specifying the detailed description of the invention and how to make and use the invention.

The specification must be written in full, clear, concise, and exact language that a person that is skilled in the technology involved in your invention could make and use your invention. Drafting of a patent specification requires technological understanding as well as legal provisions given by a patent law. The draft specification should follow the format given by the patent office.
