Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Monroe Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Monroe 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 Monroe 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 creativity and innovation, and they allow people to make a living from their innovations. Without patent law, there would be nothing to stop people from stealin

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.

What Is an Invention Disclosure?

An invention disclosure is the completion of a form that represents the first recording of the invention and establishes the date and scope.

Invention disclosures should include a comprehensive description of something novel and nonobvious explained in a way that allows anyone of ordinary skill in that particular field or industry to reproduce the invention on their own.

Invention disclosure documents have been used to defeat challenges to dates of invention, inventorship, invention scope, and prior art. If you improperly write your invention disclosure, it can result in a complete loss of your patent rights down the road.

Patent Maintenance Fees

  • 10 min read

What Are Patent Maintenance Fees?

Patent maintenance fees, also sometimes called patent renewal fees, are fees paid to the USPTO (The United States Patent and Trademark Office) to keep up a granted patent, typically a utility patent, that is already in force. With certain types of foreign patents, patent maintenance fees are also required for pending patent applications.

Patent maintenance fees are not mandatory for every type of patent. For instance, design and plant patents do not require maintenance fees. Also, some patents have laws about the maintenance fees required and how often they should be paid.

Patent Maintenance Fees in the United States

In the United States, patent maintenance fees are required for utility patents over the course of a 20-year period at three separate intervals. Patent maintenance fees are not required for design patents. This 20-year period begins at the time of patent filing or the priority date.
