Of Course, Your Creation Is New, Useful And Non-Obvious
Determining whether your work qualifies for the federal government safeguarding and your right to reap the monetary benefits for 20 years through a patent is a long process without the help of an experienced Intellectual Property attorney.
At the Law Office of Kattina V. Barsik, Esq., LLM, we assist our clients through every step of process of patent prosecution, including:
- Phone or email
- Free consultation-this is a face-to-face meeting to gather and discuss the merit to launch a feasible search
- Searches – Searching the United States Patent And Trademark Office (USPTO) databases to determine if other similar inventions may prevent patentability of your work. I also search International patent databases, including the Canadian Patent Office, the European Union Patent database, the Japanese Patent Office and the Chinese Patent Office, as well as doing an internet search for existing devices.
- Drafting – Writing or drawing adequate descriptions of your invention to meet the technical and statutory requirements
- Filing – Accurately completing and submitting the USPTO patent application along with supporting documents, including the information disclosure statement (IDS)
Once in the hands of the USPTO examiners, there will be a series of office actions, interviews, responses, continuations, divisionals or appeals before the patent is issued or the application is rejected. When the patent is issued, the process of maintenance begins.
