After a patent application is filed in the U.S., it is common for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to issue a rejection. Such rejections are transmitted through Office Actions. But receiving a rejection is not the end of the patent application process. Preparing and filing responses to Office Actions is a key part of the patent application process – something that is typically necessary to “unlock” patent protection.

The quality of your a Office Action response depends at least in part on the skill and strategy of the person preparing the response. The most skilled and strategic response cannot guarantee success, but making sure you put your best foot forward at each step of the patent application process can maximize your chances of patent allowance.
