IDS (Information Disclosure Statement) Preparation Services

A service that NOT only monitors your related cases for IDS preparation, but does so strategically in order to ensure all the references are considered by the examiner at least cost.

Our service is designed to allow our clients to meet their IDS filing needs with the least amount of effort and cost while still providing flexibility for individualized decision making.

  • Pricing per IDS: $99 (Add any cost for procuring non-patent references and translations, if applicable)
  • Pricing for all IDS Per Application Per Year: $249 (Any number of IDS submissions per application in one year + Add any cost for procuring non-patent references and translations, if applicable)

KEY to an effective/SmartIDS filing

  • file the least number of IDS’s;
  • at the least cost;
  • while insuring all references are considered by the examiner prior to a notice of allowance.

✓ Take advantage of waived filing fees by filing timely IDS’s when possible: IDS filing fees are waived for IDS’s filed prior to the first office action and for references cited in a counterpart foreign case within 3 months.

✓ Accumulate references in real time, but do not file an IDS until necessary: Filing fees are reduced by accumulating references before filing an IDS.

✓ File IDS’s as close to the notice of allowance as possible to avoid filing a continuation: By filing an IDS immediately after an applicant’s response, then periodically thereafter until there is either an office action or notice of allowance, most if not all references will be considered by the examiner prior to a notice of allowance, eliminating the need to file an RCE.
