Patent Reissue

Cantor Colburn attorneys regularly help clients enforce the patents they hold.

We offer comprehensive counsel in AIA patent reissue options:

Supplemental Examination

This proceeding gives patent holders an opportunity to correct patent errors by submitting information to the USPTO for consideration before resorting to litigation. If the information is sufficient to merit consideration of patentability, an examination will be conducted and a ruling will be made on the request.

Supplemental examination is not limited to patents and printed publications, and is a viable option for any patent issued before, on, or after September 16, 2013.

Patent Reissue

New AIA provisions have made it easier to meet the requirements for requesting a patent reissue by a patent examiner to correct patent mistakes. We have the insight and deep practical experience to guide clients through this proceeding.
