We serve inventors just starting out to those who already have several products on the market. Wherever you are at in your product development adventure, we’re ready to help you get a good picture of what’s being patented and by who. We are here to help you get a high quality patent search at a reasonable price.

A patent search offers you a great deal of useful information. A patent search report may tell you if you are indeed the first to invent the best new kitchen gadget, toy, or car accessory. A good patent search may help you decide whether to invest more in your prototype, or patent application.

A patent search report can help you or 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 the patent 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.

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 you or your patent attorney make different decisions on how best to proceed with your project.
