Patent Evaluation

What steps do we take toward getting a patent?

Generally we take the following steps to help our clients patent their inventions:

  1. Perform a Patent Evaluation to determine the right strategy.
  2. Prepare and file one or more patent application(s).
  3. Wait for review and approval of the patent application by the United States Patent Office. We argue for approval when necessary and appropriate.

Each patent and idea is unique and so is every client’s situation. We understand that and work with our clients to understand the nuances and develop an individual and appropriate patent and intellectual property strategy.

The first step toward understanding your situation and toward getting your patent is to perform a patent evaluation.

Typically, we start working with every new client by performing a patent evaluation.

The purpose of the patent evaluation is to collect the right information from you about your idea, so that we can research it and give you the best advice about how and whether to proceed. But we’ll also learn about your goals – your reasons for seeking patent protection– so that we can figure out together how owning your intellectual property could help you achieve those goals.

We collect this information from you so that we can:

  • Do the right research.
  • Give you the right advice about the prospects for obtaining patent protection for your idea.
  • Honestly discuss how patent protection might fit your goals.

We recognize that every client’s situation, motivations, and goals are unique. The importance of our patent evaluation is that it help us understand the nuances of your situation so that together we can develop an individual and appropriate patent and intellectual property strategy.

The patent evaluation fee includes:

  • Your initial meeting with one of our patent attorneys, where they’ll learn about you and your project. They will make certain they have enough information to conduct ‘prior art’ research.
  • Having the prior art research conducted, in which we search for other inventions – known as ‘prior art’ – that came before yours.
  • Having your patent attorney go through the results of the prior art research to compare your idea with what has been previously invented by others.
  • A follow up consultation with your attorney.

In your follow up consultation you and your attorney will discuss:

  • The prospects of obtaining patent protection.
  • Whether the patent you obtain would be worthwhile, and whether it would help you obtain your goals
  • The appropriate strategies and steps you can take toward obtaining patent protection.
  • Available options for proceeding with filing one or more patent applications

WE WILL PERFORM YOUR PATENT EVALUATION
FOR A FLAT FEE.
