Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Lawrence Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Lawrence 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 Lawrence 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.

Patent Number

What Is a Patent Number?

A patent number is an identifier assigned by a patent office and is used often in a patent search. The format depends on the issuing office, the type of patent, and when the patent was issued.

Patent numbers may contain a combination of several pieces of information:

  • The year the patent was issued
  • The number of the patent
  • One or more kind codes, which provide more information about the patent

For example:

  • In the United States, issued patents generally begin with "US." That is followed by the one-to-seven-digit patent number. The last part is a kind code. Each part is separated by a hyphen.
  • A U.S. Design patent number starts with a "D" or the letters "Des."

What Is a Cease and Desist Letter?

A cease and desist letter does not automatically signify a lawsuit. It is simply a warning about illegal behavior that lets you know that further penalties could follow if the behavior, such as patent infringement, doesn't stop.

Here are some ways it is possible to violate the intellectual property of another:

  • Plagiarizing someone's work
  • Using an invention without the right to access it
  • Engaging in illegal or suspicious activity that involves someone's work

The first step that you can take to address these issues is to send a cease and desist letter. This letter puts the person in violation on notice that they are engaging in illegal use of a property. It advises them to stop, or further action

What is a Patent Troll?

A patent troll is a person or business that buys patents from other companies, files lawsuits against other businesses to blame them for patent infringement, and then profit from the lawsuit instead of producing its own goods or services.

What Do They Do?

Patent trolls typically follow this pattern:

  1. Patent trolls send letters to businesses in distress or other targets and offer to buy their patents.

  2. After the companies sell their patents, the patent trolls find their victims. Their victims can be businesses that might use a process or design that's like the patents they've just bought.

  3. Trolls then threaten to sue those companies for patent infringement.

Patent lawsuits can cost millions of dollars. As a result, companies often pay licensing fees w

Micro Entity Status: What Is It?

Micro entity status helps smaller businesses and individual inventors file for patents without paying as many fees. People have been allowed to apply for micro entity status since 2012, when the America Invents Act was passed.

When you apply for a patent, you can register as a large entity, small entity, or micro entity. Large entities are the standard. They must pay the full United States Patent and Trade Office (USPTO) fee schedule. If you register as a small entity, your fees can be lowered by as much as 50 percent. However, you must qualify under the Small Business Administration's (SBA) rules as a small business. This includes having fewer than 500 employees. 

The smallest businesses and inventors can qualify for micro entity status. If you qualify for micro entity status, you
