Personally Guiding You Through the Patent Process

It is important for inventors to know how the patent process works; what phase their patent is in and how much protection their product has at any given time. Our dedicated patent lawyers will personally guide you through every step of the patent application process.

  • Patent searching: We use extensive research methods, far above and beyond searching the national registry, to make sure that our client's invention is new, original and not obvious.
  • Drafting your patent: After gaining an in-depth understanding of every element of your invention, we draft a patent application (or multiple applications) on behalf of our clients.
  • Filing a patent: We file your patent with the United States Patent and Trademark office, and wait for approval.
  • Patent pending: The patent pending phase can last from 18 months to three years. During this time, you can begin to sell your product. In fact, we encourage you to do so.
  • Enforcing your patent: We can represent you in enforcing your patent rights against infringement.
  • Licensing your patent: We can help you craft a license that will result in you being paid royalties for allowing a manufacturer to make, use and sell your invention.
