PiVerse utilizes enormous resources, which include teams of experts with extensive and varied scientific and engineering backgrounds as well as domestic IP advisors, to provide a range of substantive services involving numerous technologies. These resources enable PiVerse to operate as a technical resource for law firms and IP owners in any context relating to IP, such as with regard to drafting and prosecuting patent applications, IP licensing, IP events relating to funding and commercialization, and IP enforcement/litigation. In cases involving a regular supply of projects directed to a certain technology, we have the ability to form teams of scientists and engineers tailored to that technology to enhance the quality of our technical analyses, efficiency, and timeliness, and welcome our clients’ input in helping us to form these technical teams.

Some clients prefer that PiVerse solely focus on engineering and scientific issues, such that our reports are tailored and limited to technical analyses. In these cases, we help our clients to achieve a clear and deep comprehension of the relevant scientific and engineering issues. Other clients alternatively request that our analyses and reports also address IP related issues, and in those cases PiVerse uses domestic IP advisors capable of providing complete documents for filing in patent offices around the world. Our domestic IP advisors enable PiVerse to draft all types of IP related documents, including complete utility and design patent applications, responses to election of species and restriction requirements, responses to office actions and official letters, pre-appeal brief requests for review, complete appeal briefs, etc.

PiVerse employs teams of experts, with extensive and varied scientific and engineering backgrounds, to provide meaningful analyses involving numerous technologies. We are capable of providing pure technical support by solely focusing on engineering and scientific issues, and drafting reports that are tailored to our clients’ needs and limited to our technical analyses. PiVerse is thereby able to help our clients achieve a clear and deep comprehension of the relevant scientific and engineering issues. Our flexible approach and wide range of technical experts allow PiVerse to satisfy specific and unique requirements of each project, and offer scientific and engineering expertise for a host of esoteric technologies.

Combining teams of technical experts having extensive and varied scientific and engineering backgrounds with domestic IP advisors allows PiVerse to draft utility patent applications that are technically thorough and consistent with the requirements of patent offices around the world. Our scientific and engineering professionals provide PiVerse with the capability of drafting technically insightful patent applications that are directed to a wide range of technologies. PiVerse’s drafting teams also include domestic IP advisors who ensure that all such utility patent applications provide an enforceable scope of protection commensurate with the invention at issue and relevant patent office rules and regulations.

PiVerse utilizes a multi-step approach to drafting each utility patent application. This process is initiated by obtaining a comprehensive explanation of the invention form the inventor(s), and PiVerse has developed strategies for completing this process as effectively, efficiently, and unobtrusively as possible, such as by utilizing appropriate invention disclosure forms that are tailored to specific technologies, inventor interviews that are designed to minimize or avoid disruption of inventor schedules, etc. Prior to drafting, our teams identify differences between the invention at issue and prior art, and thereby clearly articulate the available scope of protection. PiVerse’s technical experts, who have the appropriate scientific or engineering backgrounds, then draft aspects of the application that involve the technology at issue, and particularly focus on disclosing alternative embodiments that are tailored to foreclose design-arounds by competitors. Our domestic IP advisors complete the application drafting process by preparing relevant portions of each application to ensure a sufficient enforceable scope of protection and consistency with the rules and regulations of the patent office(s) in which the application is to be filed.

We also utilize our illustration related resources, which include a variety of tools and software apps as well as illustration professionals who are knowledgable of IP rules and regulations worldwide, to draft accurate and high-quality figures for use in utility and design patent applications that are consistent with the requirements of all patent offices. PiVerse is adept at preparing appropriate figures for utility and design patent applications directed to a wide range of technologies and commercial products.

PiVerse’s scientific and engineering experts and domestic IP advisors allow PiVerse to provide an array of services that involve analyzing and responding to election of species and restriction requirements issued by patent offices around the world. In some cases, we use our scientific and engineering experts to perform technical analyses, such as identifying generic claims covering multiple species, identifying claims that cover elected species, drafting generic claims and claims to cover isolated species, determining the technical and commercial significance of certain groups of inventions or species to guide election decisions, etc. PiVerse’s domestic IP advisors provide the capability of analyzing and drafting complete responses to election of species and restriction requirements that adhere to the rules and requirements of all patent offices and jurisdictions, such as the PCT unity of invention standard, the USPTO’s broader guidelines, etc.
