Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Louisville Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Louisville 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 Louisville 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 Patent?

A patent grants an inventor the exclusive rights to his or her invention. A patent holder can stop other people from selling, manufacturing, producing, or using the invention for a certain period of time. A patent is a form of intellectual property, which means it's something that didn't exist before someone thought it up.

The Basics of Patent Law

The very first patent laws in the United States were signed into law by our first president, George Washington, on April 10, 1790.

Patent law helps protect intellectual property all over the world. It gives inventors a way to protect their creations from unlicensed manufacture, sale, or use by other people. Patents encourage creat

Why Use Multiple Patent Databases?

A patent database comparison is important since multiple patent databases are typically used during a patent search due to the fact that patents get issued worldwide for many inventions and products. If you're searching for a patent, using the right patent database will save you time.

Governments, businesses, and private organizations create patent databases to help inventors see if their ideas are already patented. Each database offers a different time range for patents, updating frequency, types of patents you can look for, and different levels of use. Some patent databases are free to search, and some charge users a fee.

To help you with your patent search, this patent database comparison lists:

Claim Chart

Claim Charts: What Are They?

A claim chart is used to show how a product (or a service) has infringed on a patent, typically a utility patent. To prove the case, the patent owner must show that the product or service in question infringes on every portion of the claims. Claim charts break down complicated claims into easily read arguments that both parties can use when deciding a case. They also make it easier to compromise and negotiate with the other side.

The claim chart breaks down a claim by its specific elements. It doesn't have to cover the entire patent claim, and can only focus on the parts of the claim that are valid. Most lawyers agree that the claim chart is only as good as the claims that it contains. If it does not contain all the c

Provisional vs. Non Provisional Patent

What Is a Provisional vs. Non-provisional Patent?

A provisional patent application allows you to begin securing patent rights while a non-provisional patent application is the first step toward a legally recognized patent. Some inventors refer to the provisional patent application as a provisional patent, but provisional patents don't exist.

A provisional patent application is meant to help protect your idea and give you time to perfect it. Once you have the design and function ready, you can apply for the non-provisional patent.

For many inventors, applying for a p
