We serve businesses with large patent portfolios and those just starting to file their first patents. Wherever your company is at in its intellectual property protection adventure, we’re ready to help you get a good picture of what’s being patented and by what competitors. Whatever the size of your business, we’re ready to help you get a quality patent search product.

A patent search offers you a great deal of useful information. A patent search report may tell you if your company is indeed the first to invent the best new kitchen gadget, toy, or composite jet engine fan blade. A good patent search may help you decide whether to invest more in the prototype, manufacturing equipment, orders, or patent application.

A patent search report can help your patent attorney write a patent application. Your patent application can state why your invention is an improvement over what was found in the patent search report.

You can also ask a patent attorney to write a patentability opinion based on a patent novelty search report. A patentability opinion written by a patent attorney states how likely they think you may or may not be able to get a patent on your invention based on the prior art found in the patent search report.

A patent attorney may also use the results of a patent non-infringement search to form a non-infringement opinion. This type of patent attorney opinion may help your company decide on whether to invest in a new product in light of other patents it may or may not infringe when making, using or selling that product.

The US Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) may take several years to examine your patent application. Having a look at this prior art (older inventions and patents) ahead of time allows your business to make different decisions on how best to proceed with its goals.
