Demystifying the Patent Application Process

Despite it being a mere application, the filing of a patent may be regarded as one of the most technically challenging application for an intellectual property (IP) right.

It is also relatively costly when compared to other types of IP applications. This complexity is compounded by the fact that no worldwide patent exists and the estimated patent application success rate is only in the 50%-60% range.

Join us at this half-day webinar to demystify the patent application process and to learn best practices when filing a patent application.

Participants will learn to make sense of the patent application and its processes in Singapore and abroad, so that potential applicants may make better filing decisions, be in a better position to prepare some parts of a simple patent application, and form a more collaborative relationship with a patent attorney.
