the legal requirements. Some portions or the patent may be rejected and
in some cases, the entire application can may be as well.
2.Amendment and Response.
The applicant may wish to consult with a New York patent lawyer to draft
a response, if there are any disagreements or to raise concerns about
errors made in the First Office Action.

Once the applicant has issued a response, it is at this point that the
