Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Evanston Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Evanston patent attorneys & lawyers represent individuals and businesses throughout the world with domestic and foreign patent preparation and prosecution matters. They have extensive experience handling applications from nearly every sector of technology, including biotechnology, computer hardware and software, communication networks, internet systems and methods, automotive, medical equipment, construction technology, consumer electronics, and clean technology research and development.

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 Evanston 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 Patent Ambiguity?

Patent ambiguity refers to uncertainty on the face of a legal document. This gives the agreement or contract an indefinite meaning. When a document includes a patent ambiguity, no external evidence can show the testator's intention, which remains unclear. A patent ambiguity may invalidate an agreement or contract.

Patent Ambiguity: What Is It?

Also known as intrinsic ambiguity, ambiguitas patens, or Section 93 of the Indian Evidence Act, patent ambiguity makes the intention behind a legal document unclear. Relying on the plain meaning of the words doesn't allow for clear interpretation. Instead, the document's obscure or senseless language makes its overall meaning ambiguous.

Patent Example: What Is It?

A patent example is a sample of a patent that has already been granted to someone. A patent example is useful for someone who is applying for a patent and wants to know what information is necessary to include in their patent application.

A patent gives inventors the rights to own their inventions. A patent is granted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office or USPTO. Once inventors are granted their patents, they have exclusive, legal protection to own, produce, sell, use, and create their product for 20 years. This term of 20 years of ownership was established because innovation and technology often make a patent obsolete after 20 years or less.

The system of patenting new technology or inventions was developed to encourage people to pursue new
