Have your digital patent claims reviewed by an industry-acclaimed expert

Your draft claims are stuck. You’ve read all the EPO Guidelines, but you just can’t figure out how to frame the invention as “technical” for the EPO.

  • Is it enough if the method processes measurements from a machine?
  • Is the simulation model technical if it mimicks a technical device?
  • Should claim 1 generate a control signal as output?

Imagine your digital patent claims are in safe hands

Picture this – You have an industry-acclaimed specialist patent attorney by your side just when you need him.

He knows which claim language to use so that the claims provide a “further technical effect” for an EPO examiner.

He tells you exactly which narrative to include in the description to underpin the non-obvious technical contribution achieved by the claims.

You feel confident that your digital patent claims are in the best possible shape.

Book a Patent Claim Review

I will review your claims and provide specific suggested edits. We can even work together 1-on-1 to find the perfect claim wording.

Here’s how it works

A Patent Claim Review typically unfolds in one of two ways:


  1. You send me your draft claims and 1-3 questions in a Word document
  2. I personally review your claims and send back a redline version with specific suggested edits, detailed explanations, and answers to your questions


  1. We arrange a 1-hour video meeting; you screen-share your draft claims and we talk through the invention and the intended claim scope; we work directly on the draft
  2. At the end of the meeting, you have an improved claim set and a compelling storyline why it meets the EPO’s strict technicality requirements
  3. After the meeting, I’ll polish the claim set according to what we’ve discussed until we both agree it’s ready

100% Money-Back Guarantee

I’m so sure that I can provide at least one improvement to your claims that I offer a 100% money-back guarantee. If you think your claims haven’t improved after the Patent Claim Review, just let me know and I’ll refund your payment in full.
