How long it takes to draft a patent depends on a number of variables. Firstly, if the idea is very technical and intense, it will take longer – usually 4-6 weeks. If it is relatively simple, perhaps low-tech, usually 2-3 weeks. It is also very dependant on how cooperative and available the client is, in providing the necessary information and details required. Due to the timely nature of IP applications, Patenting Solutions always provides a timeline and Action Plan in its quotations so the customer always knows where they stand and what to expect. A provisional application can be provided in about 48 hours depending on urgency of project. Patenting Solutions can also offer “Express Services” at an additional charge, if required.
