U.S. Nonprovisional Utility Patent Application

A utility patent is for the invention of a new and useful process, machine, manufacture, or composition of matter, or a new and useful improvement, which is the most common type of patent.

The Firm provides application drafting and prosecution services before the The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

U.S. Provisional Patent Application (Utility)

A provisional patent application (provisional application) is a U.S. national application filed in the USPTO under 35 U.S.C. §111(b), which provides a low-cost way to establish an early effective filing date (priority date) with fewer formalities.

A provisional application does NOT issue as a patent. A provisional application provides a 12-month window to file corresponding utility nonprovisional patent application in order to benefit from the priority date of the provisional application.

U.S. Design Patent Application

A design patent is for the invention of a new, original and ornamental design for an article of manufacture (under 35 U.S.C. 171).

Patentability Search and Assessment

The patentability search and assessment includes a search of prior art (including patents and published patent applications) and a patentability assessment of the invention based on the search.
