How to patent an Invention with a Patent Attorney
Here are some tips for finding a Patent Attorney that will fit your needs:
- Patent lawyers are subject matter specific based on their technical degree. For example electrical engineer, software, physics, biology, biochemistry, chemistry, computer science, or mechanical engineering, etc.
- Specific job experience can create subject matter expertise.
- Small law firms focusing exclusively on intellectual property often provide specialized attention and service.
- Most IP lawyers are capable of filing patents on mechanical devices and/or systems.
- Look for an entrepreneurial patent attorney (one who has his/her own inventions, issued patents or one who participated in startup).
- In general you get what you pay for, avoid on-line legal service offerings who ship invention work overseas.
