WHIPgroup obtained another patent allowance using the After Final Consideration Pilot (AFCP) Program. In U.S. Application No. 15/239,469 directed to an eccentric well pipe, a Final Office Action rejected pending claims for obviousness. WHIPgroup attorneys used the AFCP program to make amendments which put all claims of the application in condition for allowance. WHIPgroup’s successful use of the AFCP program helped its client avoid the need for a costly Appeal or RCE.
