How long does it take to apply for a patent?

Experience has shown that from the first meeting discussing an invention or regarding the invention disclosure form, to preparation of the patent application and affirmation of the receipt of the patent application by the patent office usually 1.5 to 3 months have elapsed. This depends very much on particular circumstances and on the quality of already existing material

Existing descriptions (state-of-the-art of technology, questions/problems, invention, experimental data, material & methods and images/drawings), thoughts about possible patent claims, own literature and patent searches and knowledge of potentially interested companies accelerate the process.for.
