WHIPgroup successfully obtained allowance of claims for a microminiature computer after unsuccessful attempts by another firm starting in 2009. Having grown frustrated with the process and unable to obtain a patent over the decade-long period, the applicant sought help from WHIPgroup after receiving another final office action. WHIPgroup attorneys immediate scheduled an interview with the examiner to explain the context of the invention and differences with the prior art. WHIPgroup then used the After Final Consideration Program to submit formal amendments that clarified the inventive concept and even broadened the protection by focusing the claim scope. The Examiner allowed the application without further rejection.
