Expedited Patent Examination

Accelerated or expedited patent applications have substantially reduced pendency as compared to regular applications. The process for accelerating a patent application is, however, highly complicated. Thus, a patent attorney experienced in filing and prosecuting accelerated examination applications can be a valuable resource in obtaining patents at a much faster rate than usual.

Cantor Colburn’s patent prosecution team has handled hundreds of accelerated or expedited patent applications. As a result, we have an intimate knowledge of the arcane rules associated with such “special” cases and can help our clients navigate the system in the most efficient manner possible.
