Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Sacramento Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Sacramento 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 Sacramento 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 Trademark vs. Patent?

A trademark protects a symbol, name, word, logo, or design used to represent the manufacturer of goods. A patent gives property rights to an inventor for a new product, preventing others from making an identical product. Many companies use both to protect intellectual property, although the two are not interchangeable.

What sets a trademark apart from other legal protections is that it only covers a single mark. That protection might be part of a logo, a symbol, a phrase, a word, or a design. But a trademark does not extend any protection to the products manufactured by the company that owns it. Another business or person can legally produce the same goods or offer the same services unless tho

Product Patents: What Are They?

A U.S. patent is a property right granted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) in order to protect an invention. A process, product, or utility patent lasts for 20 years from the date you file your patent application with the PTO, but you’ll need to pay “maintenance fees” to have rights for the full 20-year period. An industrial design patent provides production for 14 years and is used for designs and aesthetic aspects of products. Once this time period expires, the invention becomes public. There is no universal patent office, nor even a European patent office. Therefore, if you wish to have worldwide protection, chances a

What Is a Food Patent?

A food patent is a type of utility patent that covers edible products and food-related processes and compositions. The federal government tries to encourage innovation in all fields, including cooking, by granting patents through the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
