It is of critical importance that time is spent identifying the angles that competitors may come from and to cover your patent idea as thoroughly as possible from the outset. The risk of spending significant amounts of money on patenting your idea, only to be circumvented by a clever copier at the last moment, needs to be mitigated as much as possible. This is why it is vitally important to engage in a professional patent service for the preparation of your patent application.

Patent Service

A patent attorney is specifically qualified to represent a patent applicant or patent holder. Patent attorneys generally offer patent services to clients which include filing, prosecuting (e.g. respond to examination reports) and maintaining patent applications as well as acting for clients in patent oppositions and providing patent validity and infringement advice.
