Patents

Webb + Co. provide all services required to convert your idea into a patent. Our patent department accompany the process from inception to completion.
Patent Drafting, filing and prosecution

The team of the Webb + Co. Patent Department provides patent drafting and prosecution services at the highest level. When drafting a patent application, we take into account the requirements for patentability in major patent offices around the world, particularly of the European and US patent offices.

We draft and file priority and corresponding national or international applications. The policy of Webb + Co. in preparing a priority patent application (either as a U.S. Provisional patent application or as a national application) is to provide the maximum support for the client’s invention at the priority filing date. This entails preparation of a detailed specification that fully discloses and claims the invention in an enabling manner. We continue with drafting and filing international (PCT) patent applications and filing corresponding national phase application worldwide.
We represent our clients directly in Israel and prosecute applications in any country worldwide through our extensive contacts with foreign attorney firms. We select the attorney firms and associates with whom we correspond to suit the needs of the client, and coordinate the prosecution of corresponding applications in all jurisdiction.

Patent search services

We devise search strategies and implement them for patentability evaluations, freedom to operate opinions and monitoring competitors’ patents.

Patentability Evaluations

Patentability evaluations involve the distinction of the new concept from the knowledge in the prior art. This may involve distinction over the inventor’s own earlier publications or those of competitors or even distinction in view of the general knowledge in the field. The first step of each project is to define search criteria. Designing a search requires knowledge of at least the following facts:
1) the final product
2) the components used in the product
3) the intended uses of the product
4) any relevant information that may be included on the label of the product; and if possible
5) the process of manufacture of the product and whether it will be performed in Israel or elsewhere
6) the source of individual components used in the process of manufacture.

Freedom to Operate Clearance Opinions

The grant of a patent does not ensure that the patentee has freedom to practice the invention. Practicing the invention requires that no third-party patents are infringed, which is termed “freedom to operate” or clearance.

Webb + Co. is one of the most experienced firms of Israeli patent attorneys in providing analysis of third-party patent rights. We advise our clients when and where clearance analyses should be conducted and devise suitable strategies for performing these types of analyses in relevant countries.

In matters of litigation and enforcement we collaborate with Luthi + Co with whom we founded LUTHI+WEBB the Intellectual Property Group.
