Why hire a patent attorney?

So, you have an invention idea you’ve been sitting on. One that could improve your business? An idea so revolutionary that it could turn an industry upside-down? The next great app? Well, as you can assume, you’re not alone.

The one caveat, is that creating your invention is not as simple as develop – sell—profit. You need to secure a patent. A patent provides you with legal ownership over your invention and secures your legal right to manufacture, sell and profit from it. You can attempt to secure one yourself, but unfortunately, the process is long, tedious and not for the faint of heart. This is where a patent attorney can save you loads of stress.

Due to the strict requirements of passing the state bar exam and patent bar exam, patent attorneys are specialized in the laws surrounding each step in the patent process. They understand the workings of the law, providing a wealth of knowledge.

In addition to their experience, patent lawyers will often have associates who can do the menial tasks like combing through patent archives to make sure your invention is unique, thus saving you time to perfect your product.

The point of emphasis when considering whether to pursue a patent alone or employ the help of a patent lawyer, is the cost. A do-it-yourself application will run you about $900, but then you are traversing a complicated legal field on your own. If you choose to benefit from the mind of a patent attorney, the cost of securing a non-provisional patent after legal fees will run you between $8,000 and $15,000. A simple invention will cost you between $5,000 and $7,000.

Inventing a product is a courageous endeavor to pursue; one that could be beneficial to yourself and the world around you. Depending on which route you take, make sure you have the required assets to assure your idea sees the light of the open market.
