Patent claims

A patent application contains several parts, each providing specific information about your invention.  A patent application is sectioned into patent claims, drawings and specification.  The patent claims carry immense importance when it comes to a patent application because only the claims define the scope of protection of the patent while the remaining patent sections are there to clarify the claims.  The patent claims should be precise and to the point.

An experienced patent attorney will know how to draft claims that provide your invention with the best possible scope of protection.
