In order to make money from your original idea for a product or process, you need to protect that idea by obtaining a patent. At Ahmadshahi Law Offices we will help you secure a patent to protect your original invention, help you license your product, and litigate against those who infringe against your product.
To help your idea succeed, you need to make sure your idea is secured, protected, and cannot be copied. We can help you prosecute a patent application with the USPTO.
To prosecute a patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), you need the help of an experienced patent attorney who fully understands your idea and can file a complete application.
1. We conduct a patent search to determine if your invention or process has been patented already in any other country. Since your idea must be new and unique before it can be considered for a patent, we conduct a thorough national and international patent search to verify the originality of your idea.
2. If your invention is not patented already, we draft a thorough patent application that will offer you the most protection. Our patent lawyers have exceptional writing skills and will handle the drafting of your invention’s detailed description and specifications, including explanatory drawings if necessary. Our goal is to craft a patent application that is specific enough to distinguish and differentiate your unique invention yet broad enough to make it difficult for another inventor to create a similar product or idea without infringing on your idea.
3. After our attorney drafts your patent application, we prosecute the application, which means we file it with the USPTO. A patent examiner will carefully review the application, complete a separate patent search, and then decide whether your idea is “patentable.” If it is, the USPTO will send a letter of allowance, you pay the fee, and your invention is patented. If it is not, we will help you fight the denial.
4. If the USPTO declares the idea to be unpatentable because it either has been patented already or was an obvious extension of another invention, we then aggressively handle the patent application denial. We either revise your patent so that it becomes patentable, or argue to the USPTO that the originally filed patent application is novel and not obvious to a person having ordinary skill in the art.
Once you have been approved, your patent will protect your inventions from infringement. If someone infringes on your invention, we can represent you in patent litigation to protect your intellectual property rights.
