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 Parkersburg 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.

How to Patent a Design

  • 11 min read

Updated July 14, 2020:

Knowing how to patent a design is important because a patent gives you legal claim to your original design, the ability to use and sell it, and the right to profit from the unique look of an object.

What Is a Design Patent?

A design patent gives you legal claim to your original design, the ability to use and sell it, and the right to profit from the unique look of an object. If you want to patent a design, you can file a Design Patent Application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

Why Are Patent Searches Important?

How Long Does it Take to Get a Patent Pending Status

  • 10 min read

Wondering how long does it take to get a patent pending status? It occurs the moment you file a provisional patent application (PPA) or a regular patent application with the USPTO.

How Long Does Patent Pending Last: What Is the Process?

Patent pending starts from the time you submit a patent application to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). It ends when they grant or deny you a patent. Most applications are pending for one to three years. However, it can take three to five years or longer for applications involving software or electronics.

The patent pending process begins the moment the USPTO receives your patent application. It can be a provisional or nonprovisional application that starts the patent pending process. The process continues until the USPTO issues a
