How Long Does It Take to Get a Patent?

I am often asked how long it will take to get their patent granted. The answer is, as with most questions asked of lawyers, “it depends”.

This decision resolves the question regarding which standard is to be applied to determine whether an "undisclosed disclaimer" in a patent claim introduces added subject-matter (that is, it contravenes Article 123(2) EPC). Previously G 1/03 and G 2/10 have both addressed issues regarding added subject-matter of disclaimers; this is therefore the third Enlarged Board of Appeal ...
