Drafting a patent specification is an art. It requires both legal and technical expertise. In addition, it may have a lot of bearing on the future enforcement of the patent itself. In general, patent specifications are drafted with the help of a patent attorney or patent agent who has the technical background as well as legal background or patent law expertise.
Getting a patent on your innovation can prove to be an expensive affair. Most inventors look at cutting down the cost by not engaging professional services. They decide to draft the patent specifications by themselves. This, however, is never a good idea. At the outset, it must be mentioned a patent specification is a techno-legal document. So, along with technological expertise you will also need the legal acumen for drafting the patent specification. Attempting to draft a patent specification on your own can prove detrimental to your interest of getting a patent. This is because, if the claims in the patent are not drafted properly, it can severely narrow the scope of your innovation, thus making your patent useless.
