Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Naperville Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Naperville 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 Naperville 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 Does Patent Pending Mean?

Patent pending means that an application has been submitted to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). When you submit an application for a utility, design, or plant patent, the USPTO issues a patent pending serial number, which serves to alert competitors and the public that you are in the process of seeking a patent on your invention.

The patent pending status does not protect the invention, and you can't sue for infringement if someone copies your idea. You only get full legal protection on your idea once the USPTO approves the patent. So, once you receive approval for your patent application, you can take legal action against

What Is a Patent Keyword Search?

A patent keyword search is a type of patent search that helps you locate patents similar to your invention by looking up keywords in various patent databases. By doing a patent keyword search, you get a good sense of whether your invention can be patented or a competing patent already exists. You can only get a patent for an invention no one has thought of before. 

It is important to remember that just because you have never seen something like your invention does not mean you are the first person to think of it.

Why Is a Patent Keyword Search Important?

A patent keyword search is an important step in preparing your patent application. This kind of research h
