New Businesses/Individual Inventor Consulting

You are ready to pursue protection for your invention, but this is your first foray into the patent process.  You have selected a trademark for your product but need assistance evaluating whether the mark is available for use and how to protect it.  You need a firm that starts by explaining the patent process in detail, including search options, avoidable pitfalls, and considerations for evaluating the potential scope of protection against the expense to pursue it.  Overall, you need a team that is willing to spend the time to help you understand how the four core areas of IP (patent, trademark, copyright, and trade secrets) may apply to your new venture; to understand the pros, cons, and expenses of pursuing protection; and to work with you to develop an effective IP business plan.
