PATENT FILING

The first and most important step towards filing a proper patent application is the disclosure of all relevant information concerning the concept you are trying to patent. This will help the patent drafter fully describe and explain your inventive concept to the patent office. Failure to provide a full and complete explanation can result in a rejection based on indefiniteness or lack of enablement. This is why we ask you to be as forthcoming as possible with your disclosure, including written description and drawings. As far as drawings go, we can work with rough sketches, photos, or diagrams so there’s no need for you to provide professional quality drawings. We will create a set of professional drawings as part of your patent application. If you are ready to begin the process of applying for a patent please click on the link below.

PATENT SEARCHING

A patent search can be a useful step before filing a patent application.  The goal of our patent search is to find any “prior art” in the form of published patents and patent applications that might contain one or more elements of the invention you are trying to patent.  The results of the patent search will be presented to you in a search report and you will have the opportunity to discuss the findings with a patent attorney.  The search report and consultation should help you make a more informed decision about whether to file a patent application.

PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT

In addition to filing for a patent, it is very helpful to have a physical prototype of your invention to show to potential investors or buyers.  A prototype brings your invention to life and is far more effective at demonstrating the novel features of your invention than a patent specification and drawings.  This is why we encourage inventors to get a prototype made confidentially before you meet with investors or other interested parties.  We can put you in touch with a prototype developer we use, or you are welcome to find one that you are comfortable working with.

NON DISCLOSURE

If you are planning to present your idea or prototype to a third party you should always have a Nondisclosure Agreement (NDA) in place before sharing your proprietary information.  An NDA is like any other contract and is enforceable in Court or through Arbitration.  In addition, an NDA is a good deterrent against misappropriation of your idea.  Contact me to discuss how an NDA can protect you, especially if you don’t have a patent yet.
