Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Mansfield Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Mansfield 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 Mansfield 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 Pending Infringement

  • 8 min read

What Is Patent Pending Infringement?

As soon as you file a patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), your invention is "Patent Pending." Once your application is submitted, nobody can steal, sell, or use your invention without your permission. If this happens, they are infringing on your patent, assuming it gets issued. However, you cannot sue until your patent gets issued.

Say you invent something and want to sell it. You need to apply for a patent to prevent others from stealing your work and using it as their own. A patent is the only way to stop others from infringing on your work. The sooner you file a patent application, the better. You are protected from patent pending infringement from the day that your application is submitted.

What Is the Patent Pending Process?

The patent pending process means you've filed a patent application that's now pending with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The office is also called the U.S. Patent Office or the USPTO. Another term for your invention is intellectual property.

Getting funds for an invention requires talking about it. But many inventors don't want to discuss their invention because they may lose patent rights to it, or someone might steal their idea. In the U.S., you have one year to file a patent application after you first publicly discuss the invention. That's why many inventors quickly file a utility patent application. Once you file an application, your invention is in th

What Is a Licensing Agreement?

A licensing agreement, or license agreement, is a deal between the owner of a patent, brand, or trademark and someone who wants to use the patented or trademarked goods and services.

Post Grant Review

What Is a Post Grant Review?

A post grant review is a way of questioning a patent's validity recently issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark office. The America Invents Act (AIA) created it as a counterpart to inter partes review. Together, they replace the inter partes re-examination. A post grant review is available immediately after the patent has been issued. An inter partes review becomes available after the post grant review period has passed.

Post Grant Proceedings

The post grant review process was designed to allow the proceeds to be quick. The Director needs to set the rules that explain how long the proceedings will last within one year from the start of the proceedings. If the Director can show sufficient cause, he or she can set the rules within 18 months.
