How to apply for a patent ! 

If you have a new product idea invention and wish to commercialise it. You need to protect it. You need to secure ownership of your creative work.  


A patent is a document that discloses the spirit and the technical aspects of the new product idea invention and is made up of four parts :


  • A written description.

  • Drawings.

  • Claims that define the technical features.

  • An abstract’ summarising the invention.

Once the application has been completed, filing the patent application with the IPO is relatively straight-forward. Form 1 ‘Request for Grant of a Patent’ needs to be completed and forwarded together with the patent application to the UK IPO.


Once the UK IPO receives the application they will respond by issuing a filing receipt which includes the application number and the ‘filing date’ of the application.


However, not all new products, ideas and inventions can be patented and or should be pursued.


It is therefore important to consider all the facts before the application is made. After all, there’s no point in investing good money at patenting a product, idea or invention when there's little or no benefit in doing so. 

Our absolute adherence to commerciality means we only concentrate and support projects that are commercial, viable and feasible. Importantly have genuine business value. 


To confirm your project is patentable, we undertake a comprehensive assessment (free of charge) which includes a worldwide patent search, to spotlight the road ahead, uncover any potential conflicts, threats and risks. 


Our assessment provides the confidence that should you apply for a patent, it will produce a positive result.


What is a Patent

A patent is a legal right granted by a country's government. It informs the world you are the legal owner of the patented material e.g. product, invention, specification and grants an exclusive right to freely pursue it (without competition) within the country for a limited period.


Patents make it illegal for anyone except the owner or someone with the owner’s permission to make, use, import or sell the patented material in the country where the patent was granted. 

Patents cover products or processes that contain new functional or technical aspects, how they work, how they are made or what they are made of. Such as electronics, medicines, agriculture and transport. Anything in fact from a small detail in an electric switch to an entire power station.
