Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Lincoln Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Lincoln 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 Lincoln 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.

A non-provisional patent application requests the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to issue a utility patent.

What Is a Patent?

Before we discuss how to complete your non-provisional patent applications, it's important to spend some time discussing a few basic facts about patents. Essentially, a patent is a type of intellectual property protection. With a patent, you can protect a new discovery or an invention.

What Is Patent Prosecution?

Patent prosecution is the legal right to protect your intellectual property. In a legal sense, the phrase "patent prosecution" typically refers to the plaintiff's side of a patent-related lawsuit. But when looking at patent law as a whole, patent prosecution usually refers to the process of obtaining patent protection on an idea, invention, design, or plant. If a patent holder is looking to take legal action against someone who infringed on his patent, he would seek a litigator who specializes in patent law.
