Patent Search and Patentability Opinion Services
Before you file a patent application to protect your invention, it’s best to first perform a thorough patent search to determine whether your invention will likely qualify for a patent. After all, it’s much easier, and substantially less expensive to perform a patentability search before preparing and filing a patent application. Otherwise you may find that the time and considerable expense you expended to prepare and file your patent application, without the benefit of a patent search beforehand, is wasted after the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office rejects your invention, because it isn’t new.
At Axenfeld Law, a patent attorney licensed to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and before State bars in Pennsylvania, the District of Columbia (Washington, DC), New York, New Jersey, and/or Georgia, will obtain a professional search, analyze the results of the search, and render a patentability opinion whether your invention is likely patentable in the United States.
Although no patent search is guaranteed, it should help better educate us where the demarcation line is between what’s novel and unobvious. Axenfeld Law’s patent-search services, and patentability opinion, will also help you figure out how innovative your invention really is, and the scope of patent coverage you can reasonably expect to be gratned. Ultimately, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office will determine the breadth of patent coverage, but our patent-search services, will help Axenfeld Law draft a stronger patent application for you. Based on the results of a quality patent search, our goal is to draft a patent application for you that has the greatest chance for allowance by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
If you’d like to begin the patent process, and have a patent search performed and analyzed, please contact a federally licensed patent attorney at Axenfeld Law.
Axenfeld Law Group tends to charge between $1,500 and $2,000 to perform a patent search, and send you a detailed patentability opinion. For those prices, we’ll also discuss the results of the search with you, and options for moving forward.
