Office Actions and Amendments

If the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office ("USPTO") has a concern with or reason to reject any portion of your patent application, an Office Action, or written communication regarding your patent application, is issued.

All Office Actions are different -- some are mere requests for additional information or better drawings, and others represent a denial or rejection of your application. However, a response to any Office Action must follow specific guidelines and requirements, and must be filed before expiration of a given deadline. Failure to do so could result in abandonment of your invention and patent application.

If an Office Action was issued on your patent application, contact Hanrahan Law Firm, P.A. now. Since each Office Action is different, we will review the Office Action, help decide what options are available for you, and prepare any responses as necessary. Our initial review will be conducted at no charge, and we will promptly provide you with a flat rate for any response or other work relative to the Office Action and your patent application.
