Securing a utility patent

A utility patent lawyer will help you protect the creation of a new or improved product, process or machine and is by far the most common filed patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). To obtain a utility patent, the invention must be useful and serve some practical or functional purpose. While utility patents are more expensive than design patents, which protects a product’s ornamental design, they typically provide broader patent protection. A utility patent expires 20 years from the application filing date, subject to the payment of appropriate maintenance fees. Filing for a utility patent application on your own is no easy task and carries too much of a risk for making a mistake. That’s why so many turn to the top-notch a utility patent lawyer on LawTrades for their patent needs.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Working with my lawyer assign Jon H. was very easy and seamless. He was quick, attentive and answered my questions and concerns in a timely manner. Definitely recommend you and his services.

Ori A.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Great experience all around, LawTrades was just so much more personal and much better than other startup/online on-demand solutions for legal work,. Almost feels like I handpicked and hired the attorney myself. The Attorney was available to answer questions by phone or text message, so was the LawTrades rep who set the whole thing up. And when setting up new entities you always have questions, so this was a big deal for me. The Attorney assigned to my project was available on demand to help out explain things every step of the way and I think the guys at LawTrades have done a great job with making you feel extremely comfortable. After all was done I even got an email and a call from one of the co founders of the company to make sure I had a seamless experience. I never got a call from other companies I had used in the past like Legal zoom and the whole thing always felt so automated. Yes, granted Legal zoom probably have way more clients than Lawtrades and as such would not be feasible for their management to call everyone, however, that was a nice touch which I do appreciate. I will definitely be heading back to Lawtrades whenever I require legal assistance.

Frequently asked
questions

What does a utility patent application require?
Most utility patent applications include: 1) a description and claim of the invention (called a specification); 2) drawings and the explanation of them (if necessary); 3) a declaration or oath by the inventor; 4) fees for the filing, search, and examination of the patent. All non-provisional utility patent applications have to be in English, or have an English translation with a statement that confirms that the translation is accurate, and a fee.
What is public disclosure?
Public disclosure is the making public of a concept or invention. In the U.S., an inventor’s public disclosure of their work made less than one year prior to their patent filing date will not count as prior art. This is referred to as a “grace period” for the inventor’s own disclosure. The grace period allows others to publish similar work or work that builds off your own work. These intervening publications can prevent or prevent patentability of your invention.
What qualifies for utility patent protection?
Utility patent protection extends to: 1) machines; 2) articles of manufacture; 3) processes, and (chemical) compositions of matter.
Can I submit a provisional application for a design patent?
No. Provisional applications for patent may not be filed for design inventions.
How long does it take to receive utility patent protection?
While the length is subject to a myriad of factors, it generally takes between two and three years for the USPTO to determine whether to issue the patent.
Can computer software qualify for utility patent protection?
Yes the software may qualify for a patent if the patent application produces a useful, concrete, and tangible result. The online patent lawyers on LawTrades have helped many software startups obtain utility patents.
