Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Wichita Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Wichita 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 Wichita 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.

MPEP 2143

What Is MPEP 2143?

MPEP 2143 is about "the basic requirements of a prima facie case of obviousness." MPEP stands for "Manual of Patent Examining Procedure," and section 2143 discusses how unique an invention has to be to get a patent

Not every new idea deserves a patent. For instance, think of a table fan that can oscillate 120 degrees. If you invent a fan that oscillates 180 degrees but is exactly the same otherwise, that's too obvious to patent even if it hasn't been done before. You might get a patent if you invent a fan that oscillates a full 360 degrees, but that's because you'd have to invent a new gear system to make it work.
