Streamlined Services For Inventors
If you are looking to license your invention to make royalties, we have developed a proprietary system that can maximize your success while limiting your out-of-pocket expense. Below is an outline of the major steps involved.
Patent Search and Opinion of Patentability
We strongly recommend that all inventors perform adequate research and due diligence regarding prior art, competitive products and issued patents relating to their invention. This way an inventor is able to determine if the invention they "invented" is novel, and thus patentable. Too often inventors skip this step, invest in product development and later come to find that their invention was already patented by another party. You can utilize your own attorney or agent for the patent search, otherwise we have very competitive rates for the patent search, which also includes an opinion of patentability form a registered patent attorney!

Provisional Patent Application
The Provisional Patent Application provides inventors with one year of patent-pending status at a fraction of the cost of the utility patent. This allows inventors the ability to survey market interest and develop their invention further prior to incurring fees. It is an excellent strategic tool for inventors seeking to license their invention by affording them the ability to gather valuable market insight from the industry. As with the patent search, you may utilize your own attorney or agent for preparing the Provisional Patent Application, however our services likely provide you with lower costs while still being reviewed and filed by a registered patent attorney.
