Our experienced team can help you identify and capture inventions

You’re running a successful technology business and you have a team of engineers and researchers working to develop and improve your products, and generating valuable intellectual property along the way.

You know that new inventions can be protected with patents so that you can prevent other people from copying your ideas.

However, in order to protect your innovations, the first step is to identify them!

A crucial tool that will help you do this is an Invention Disclosure Form.

What is an invention disclosure form?

An invention disclosure form (or IDF, as patent attorneys like to call it) is a document which sets out in an organised way a set of questions designed to provide documentation of an invention.

Invention disclosure forms are commonly used to extract the relevant information about an invention, which can be used to assess the options of how to protect it and ultimately provide a framework for drafting a patent should that be the decision which is made.
