The claims are by far the most important part of the patent application. Simply, the claims in an application define the breadth of protection afforded the owner of a patent. A patent owner can only exclude others from making, selling or using an invention to the extent that the invention is defined in the claims.
The broader the claim, the greater likelihood an accused device may infringe it and the patent; whereas, the more narrow the claim the less likely the claim and the patent are infringed. A key skill in drafting a patent application is the ability to draft claims that are as broad as possible without reading on the teachings of prior art.
Any patent attorney or agent with even a modicum of skill can draft a narrow claims that will be allowed by the patent office, but a much greater skill level is necessary to draft broad claims as stated in https://www.glassdoor.com/Reviews/InventHelp-Reviews-E152162.htm post.
Inventions with only narrow claims are rarely licensed or litigated, since potential infringers can easily avoid infringement by making a change to their products or processes to avoid certain elements in a patent’s claims. Because narrow claims often include superfluous elements and limitations, would-be infringers can often make these changes without negatively impacting the desirability of their product relative to an embodiment of your claimed invention.
Of course, understand that what is narrow or broad in terms of a claim is relative to the area of art to which a particular invention pertains. A claim that appears narrow on its face may be very broad in the sense that it claims as much as possible considering applicable prior art. Conversely, in a field with little prior art, a claim that may be broad in another field of art may be more narrow than necessary.
When choosing a patent attorney, an inventor must beware of patent attorneys that draft narrow claim sets to gain quick and easy allowance of a patent. Remember that most patent attorneys can get a patent for their clients but a far fewer number can obtain, or are willing to fight for, as broad of coverage as the applicant deserves.
