Patent, Trademark & technology Law
Patent fees can get out of hand unless you structure a project intelligently from the beginning. We provide a patent-filing strategy that fits your means and goals. We help you determine what is commercially meaningful, what is worth spending money on, and what is not.
Our fees are always competitive. Most clients choose FIXED-FEE billing which ensures predictability. We can give you a fixed budget for a single filing or an entire patent cycle, including international filing, allowing you to confidently make commercial decisions. There is never any charge for calls or emails, admin etc.
We understand the patent system from the inside, and know how to use the various Patent Office fee discounts (academic and income-based) to your benefit. These can reduce USPTO filing fees by 75%.
To give you an example of actual costs, a simple patent application can be drafted and filed for as little as $3500 plus USPTO fees of about $455 for micro entity. An international application can be filed for $1990 plus patent office fees. Email us for a free, confidential consultation and quote: email@example.com
