Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Lebanon Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Lebanon 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 Lebanon 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.

Utility Patent vs. Design Patent

  • 11 min read

A utility patent vs. a design patent may have inventors wondering which one is best for their invention. Utility patents and design patents differ because utility patents cover unique ideas or inventions, but design patents are for new designs of existing products.

Utility Patent vs. Design Patent

The difference between a utility patent and a design patent is that:

  • The utility patent is a trademark protection that makes sure a person has full control over his or her invention.
  • A design patent is used when you create a new design for an existing product.

What Is a Utility Patent?

The utility patent is a trademark protection that makes sure a person has full control over his or her invention. More than 90 percent of all patents issued each year are utility patents.

Utility Patent Cost

  • 10 min read

The utility patent cost includes a $540 patent search fee, a $220 examination fee, a $330 application filing fee, and possibly a patent lawyer's legal fees which can exceed $10,000. The utility patent lasts 20 years from the date of the original application filing and includes maintenance fees that are billed every few years as follows:

  • 3.5 years - $980
  • 7.5 years - $2,580

If your patent application has more than three claims on it, you'll be charged an extra $220 per claim. If you have more than 10 claims on the application, the fee is only $52 per claim.

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) might also include additional fees including post-issuance fees, extension of time fees, and trademark processing fees, among others.

Patent Claim Construction

  • 4 min read

What Is a Patent Claim?

A patent claim is the part of your patent application, typically for utility patents, that explains what it is you are trying to protect. 

Patent Claim Construction: What is it?

If you have to accuse a person or company of stealing your idea, you will need to prove there has been patent infringement. This process has two steps:

  • There is the patent claim, which explains the product's use and makeup.

  • There is the infringement analysis, which determines whether or not the claim has been violated.

This means you can't determine the second part (and win the case) without having a strong claim.

Patent Prototype: What Is It?

A patent prototype is a model, first creation, draft, or patent drawing of an invention. Prototypes are excellent ways to prove your concept or idea, but are not required in the patent application process by the United States Patent Office (USPO). This means you do not need a prototype to attain a patent and likewise, don't need a patent to create a prototype.

A patent signifies ownership of an invention or idea and protects the owner from infringement of that patent. Patent applications should be as detailed and thorough as possible. To show details, many applications include patent drawings or prototypes. So, while a prototype is not required for your patent application, it

What is a Notice of Allowance?

A Notice of Allowance is a document sent to a patent applicant from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) after a patent examiner has decided to issue the requested patent.

This information includes the patent's description, design, drawings, or blueprints.

Since the Notice of Allowance shows the application is complete and meets all requirements, it is the final step in the long and complex
