For every stage of the patent prosecution process from filing to grant, there are many important activities that are required including docketing, preparation of filing packages, IDS management, proof reading, data verification and IP recordals. These “patent prosecution support activities” are generally performed by the paralegals working with their respective patent attorneys. Historically, patent support activities were mainly performed by in-house paralegals. The administrative burden of handling growing volumes of patent prosecution activities has led to the outsourcing of support services.
