The time period of the standard pathway for prosecution of a US patent application varies greatly according to, for example, the technology area of the application, the complexity of the technology, and the number and complexity of the issues raised by the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) during the prosecution. The average time period for an application with a mid-level of complexity is from about eighteen months to eight years. The USPTO provides several “alternative” pathways, each with its own substantive and/or procedural requirements, by which the period of pendency of a patent application can be considerably reduced.

In this webinar, we will:

  • Identify the USPTO patent prosecution pathways that allow for decreased times of pendency
  • Describe the substantive and procedural requirements for these “alternative” pathways
  • Identify advantages and disadvantages of the pathways
  • Provide tips for avoiding pitfalls in the various pathways

Presenter:

Stuart Macphail, PhD, Principal, New York
