Patent prosecution expert witnesses may be sought out for many different cases, since a wide variety of industries utilize patent laws as a form of protection against infringement. Patent prosecution refers to the process of filing for a patent with the US Patent and Trademark Office, which includes filling out a patent application that is later reviewed by a patent examiner, who is tasked with determining whether to accept or reject the patent request.
