Patent Application Services

Axenfeld Law drafts patent applications to protect your most innovative products and processes. We then file your patent applications in the Unites States Patent & Trademark Office (“USPTO”), and around the world.

A patent issued by the United States Patent & Trademark Office, grants its owner — i.e., a business or inventor — the right to prevent others from making, using, offering to sell, selling or importing into the U.S. any invention covered by the patent without the owner’s authorization. Thus, a patent is a powerful-intellectual asset that garners in its owner, the exclusive right to exclude others, for up to 20 years from the filing date of the patent, from making, using, selling, offering to sell, or importing into the US, anything covered by the patent. Besides protecting valuable research and development, patents allow a business owners to put in place roadblocks to slowdown copycat competitors from stealing their innovations without remuneration.

Axenfeld Law’s patent attorneys —licensed to practice both before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, and before the State bars in Pennsylvania, the District of Columbia (Washington, DC), New York, and/or New Jersey — have decades of experience procuring patent protection for their clients in the U.S. and internationally. Below is a brief outline of each type of patent and/or patent application that Axenfeld Law can help secure for you.

There are three types of patents: utility, design, and plant patents. A utility patent covers the “useful” (i.e., the functional) aspects of an invention. A design patent covers the ornamental features (i.e., the way a product looks and feels) of an invention. And a plant patent covers a new variety of plant. Axenfeld Law offers Utility and Design patent application services.
