Realized ideas are worthless – except to someone else capitalizing on your idea – unless you seek thorough, timely and legal protection.  A Registered Patent Attorney can explain what an inventor should and should not do before and during the patent application stage. Patents are territorial rights, and a patent gives you the legal right to stop others from making, using, selling, offering to sell, or importing in the U.S. your patented invention.  Another benefit of being a patent holder is the exclusive right to license others to make, use or sell the invention and to collect royalties on each product sold.

A non-provisional patent application is not just another form to fill out.  A formal patent application is a lengthy, complex and carefully worded legal document. For examples, the specification clearly and completely describes your invention or innovation; the claims define the scope of protection sought and granted. Proper drafting of claims separates a good Patent Attorney from an exceptional Patent Attorney.
