About Qualipat, Inc.
QualiPat was founded in 2008, based on the idea that better drafting could produce better patents. Joseph Root, the founder, parlayed his long experience in both training and patent prosecution to devise a new, rule-based approach to patent drafting. Rather than teach the law, on the law school model, QualiPat seeks to teach patent drafting, a skill that engineers, not just lawyers, can practice with great success. The company has presented training programs to US firms as well as to patent engineers in both the US and India. For more information email at or visit the web site at
