When developing a new product, to ensure a project's path forward and it's market potential, it is generally wise to first do a thorough competitive market analysis as well as have a professional preliminary patent search conducted. Often we suggest this, because whether or not you plan on filing for a patent, you do not want to unknowingly infringe on existing patents or prior art which could result in legal problems and wasted time and money.
Along with this, there are lots of games and abuse that exist in the patent system that most are not ever aware of. In some cases, patents are written, not for the purpose of ever bringing an item to market for profit, but to be obscure to find in valid patent searches for the sake of later litigating over infringement issues. People like this are often called "patent trolls" and there are many of them out there.
For further information about patent prior art searches and the help we can offer, we have a dedicated page providing further explanation.
After a preliminary patent search is done, the claims within your patent draft can be defined and then reviewed by a USPTO licensed patent agent. The patent application draft can then be created, either done by us in-house or by any means you choose, as well as the patent drawings that must be included in the application.
Once your patent application is ready to be filed, we have USPTO licensed patent agents that we work with who will be able to review your patent draft, and also file the patent with you either electronically or in-person.
