PATENT

Patent Search:.

We will make a 20 year U.S. patent search (USPTO) and obtain copies of any patents which may be related to your concept. Our fee for a patent search is $400.00.

 

Patent Feasibility:

We will conduct some research to determine the feasibility of obtaining a patent. If all relevant information is provided by the client, we will determine the patent feasibility of the novel product or concept for a retainer of $300.00 We will sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement Form (NDA). Our NDA can be downloaded from our website.

 

Patent Application:

Preliminary patent disclosures are no longer accepted by the USPTO. Therefore it is important to start immediately to accumulate information for a regular provisional patent application. We will write up a provisional application with a full disclosure and description of the novel product or concept with claims and we will cite any related prior art and patents. We will also suggest improvements or additional applications to make a stronger patent, which, when granted, will be in effect 20 years. If needed and authorized, we will run laboratory tests to develop, expand, or improve the product or concept. We will not claim any ownership.

Our minimum fee to write the application is $2500.00 for a provisional patent. If needed, we will have a patent attorney review the patent for an additional fee of $1500.00. The USPTO fee ($410.00) for the provisional patent application is not included. Mechanical devices always require special drawings which may cost an additional $600.00 and a working model may be required.
