Patent your Medical Device

Speak with a national patent attorney with expertise in medical & dental products, processes, and software.

In fact, a tiny mistake in your medical patent filing could put 20 years of exclusive ownership of your medical idea or invention at risk.

Famously, one of the nation’s largest outsourcing pharmacy networks sued a rival based on a single letter missing from a key phrase used in the original patent application. This costs the inventor several million dollars in royalty payments. (More on this below.)

The Top Five Reasons to Choose Prof. Rizvi to Patent Your Medical Device.

He has a full-service team ready to secure and protect your medical patent no matter where you reside in the United States.

  • Get a Free 1-Hour consultation by phone

Prof. Rizvi assists clients throughout the United States and internationally without the need for an in-person meeting. Hiring a patent attorney with experience in medical devices is akin to hiring a specialist heart surgeon: you would not limit yourself to a 10-mile driving radius. Less than 1 percent of all lawyers are registered to practice before the US Patent Office (USPTO) and most of these patent attorneys are “jack of all trade” attorneys with no particular experience in medical innovations. Virtually all patent applications now take place electronically illustrating how location has become virtually irrelevant in choosing a patent attorney.

  • Fixed pricing

We offer fixed, transparent pricing that is highly competitive and affordable, allowing you to file, maintain and benefit from your invention without any surprises. Contrary to popular belief, hiring an expert is NOT more expensive

  • Specialized experience in medical device patent filing

Medical Device Patents require intricate and extensive knowledge of USPTO filing nuances particular to this industry sector. With his professorial background and two decades of experience, Prof. Rizvi offers your best chance of success.

  • Learn how to avoid the three biggest mistakes in medical patent filings

These include leaving out basic background information to set the stage for the need for the innovation, being too vague in the specification, and not fully distinguishing competitive products. Drafting an application properly is an art and mistakes at this critical junction can end up costing you thousands of dollars in wasted fees and jeopardize your protection.

  • Trust, privacy and 100% client confidentiality

Prof. Rizvi and his firm can offer you highly discrete and secure environment through which to pursue your patent.

One WRONG letter spells Patent Disaster

Medical device ideas are different. Central Admixture Pharmacy Services (CAPS®), the nation's largest network of outsourcing admixture pharmacies sued Advanced Cardiac Solutions (ADS) for patent infringement relating to a chemical solution used during heart surgery. The infringement centered around the incorrect use and spelling of the word “osmolality in the original patent which changed the entire context of application. ADS had filed using the word “osmolarity”, replacing the “l” with an “r” which precipitated the lawsuit. Don’t let this happen to you: Hire a specialist in medical patent law who deeply understands the subtleties and nuances of patent applications.

The Pitfalls of Delaying a Medical Patent Filing

In 1874, Inventor Alexander Bell was in competition with Elisha Gray to be the first to invent a practical harmonic telegraph. He filed his application with the USPTO just hours before Gray, winning the patent. Mr. Rizvi takes you through this controversy and explains why delaying your medical patent filing could be catastrophic.

“I did my homework to find the right attorney who can patent domestically and internationally. It then came down to three  candidates, and after the interview process I knew Rizvi was  the one. Rizvi not only practices, but teaches as well. The  patenting process isn't easy, you have to understand that the  USPTO can easily hand you a final rejection anytime. But he  works with you all the way. He knows what he is doing and he  is really humble.
