Patent Attorney

If you have come up with an invention that you believe is unique and valuable, it is strongly suggested that you file a patent to protect your ideas from being reproduced. Filing with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office can be a complicated process, but the reward of navigating the application can be extremely rewarding when you are able to pursue your invention without worrying about competitors copying you.

Our Most Frequently Asked Questions

A patent is a form of intellectual property that gives its owner the legal right to exclude others from making, using, selling, and importing an invention for a limited period of years, in exchange for publishing an enabling public disclosure of the invention.

In general, inventions are patentable if they are novel, useful, and non-obvious. To clarify, an invention must be new (novel), have some utility or use, and exhibit an inventive step not obvious to someone skilled in the field.

The four classes of patent are the following:

  • A Machine: an apparatus or device
  • A Manufacture: a manufactured article
  • A Composition of Matter: a combination of ingredients, such as chemicals
  • A Process: a method of doing something

Let us help you pursue your goals.

The cost of the patent application is calculated based on a thorough patent search. If the field of your invention is highly competitive, meaning there are many existing related or similar inventions, it will require our team more time to draft the patent application. Once the patent search is completed, a fixed fee will be determined.

The provisional patent application offers a cost-effective way to secure an early filing date and a 12-month period to further develop the invention or seek investors. However, the non-provisional patent application is the pathway through which an inventor can pursue a patent, offering legal protection and exclusive rights to the invention. 

Therefore, starting with a provisional patent application is ideal if your idea isn’t fully developed yet, as this initial filing grants you protection for a year — giving you more time to refine your concept. Transitioning to a non-provisional patent involves drafting claims, unlike the provisional application. Note that once the non-provisional patent is submitted to the U.S. Patent Office, modifications to the original concept are no longer permitted. Our professionals at The Idea Attorneys® can tailor a strategic plan to fit your needs and goals.
