- Explain your product
You have a major role to play at this stage. Your patent advocate has to understand clearly what your product is. Therefore, you need to explain everything in detail.

- Preparation of Patent Application
Once your patent consultants are clear on the basis of which to base the patent claim, they start preparing the patent application. Everything has to be in order according to the patent registration form. Once you both agree that the application is accurate and complete, the application is ready for filing.
- Filing of the Application
The third stage is the complete responsibility of the patent agent. They are sure to be experienced in filing the application and it won’t take long for them to get it done.

The queries to be answered, the points to be put forward to convince the patent office that your invention is unique, submit any other documents and the list goes on and on. Though, with a good patent attorney by your side, you will not face so much trouble.
Once you have been through these four stages, it is time for celebrations. By now you must have got a patent secured successfully.
