Our patent attorneys are of the most highly trained in the industry, requiring a scientific background, and passing a second level of testing known as the Patent Bar Examination. Thousands of patents are submitted to the patent office every day and a patent committee reviews each patent for its validity. The process requires that correctly drafted documentation present a clear case for the novelty of the invention, which is best made by a patent attorney with a higher education background in your industry.

Our Anchorage patent attorneys & lawyers can help you file a provisional patent, which lasts for 1-year and allows you to immediately begin using/manufacturing your invention with the confidence that your idea is protected. These types of patents are great if you think your idea will change a lot over the next year before you file a (non-provisional) patent. These patents are easier to obtain and are less expensive but you should have a patent lawyer review your provisional patent application to insure that you are meeting your objectives when you file your patent.

What Is a Plant Patent?

A plant patent is for newly invented strains of asexually reproduced plants. To be patentable, the plant must have been asexually propagated. These are plants that reproduce by means other than from seeds, such as by the rooting of cuttings using layering, budding, grafting, or inarching. Not all countries allow the patenting of plants, but the USPTO issues a patent to anyone who has invented, discovered, or asexually reproduced a distinctly new kind of plant. This includes any cultigen, mutants species, hybrid species, and newly found seedlings not derived from a tuber-produced plant or a plant found in a wild state. Plants cultivated using tubers and wild or uncultivated plants are not patentable.  The term “"tuber"” means short, thickened under

According to US law, software (someti
