Patent, Patent Pending, Patent Law, The Moster Law Firm

Patent Law Attorney in Texas

We provide extensive patent services to our clients in all areas including software, computer hardware, and mechanical devices. A key area is advising clients on the best navigation through the patent submission process, review, and ultimate approval by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.  A thorough understanding of the clients’ business model and immediacy is critical to recommending the patent solution as there is often a rush to get the software to market before competitors. In some circumstances, we will recommend that a client obtain an immediate provisional filing to protect the IP as the fundamentals of the technology are fine-tuned along with the entity structure and funding. This often occurs when there is a risk that the IP can be stolen by third parties including disgruntled employees who want to run off with the “high-tech jewels”. This happens more frequently than people are aware. Of course, we conduct patentability opinions to determine whether the product or service can be patented and then chart a path forward.  Assuming there is a problematic patent filing that jeopardizes the ability to obtain a patent, we will advise the client on what potential changes can be instituted within the design of the patent to increase the likelihood of success.

In the event a provisional patent is filed it is not examined by the Patent Office but simply serves as a placeholder to file a fully vetted utility patent within a one year absent which all rights will be lost. It is very easy for clients to lose track of this timeframe given the demands of a new company. This is a major reason why it is important to have an IP attorney involved in the early stages.

The filing of a patent is a complex and often expensive undertaking as it involves the work of a registered patent attorney.  In selecting a patent law firm, it is always advisable to determine whether the patent attorney has the requisite experience to understand the technology and render the proper claims and designs.
