Do I need a patent attorney?

Patent attorneys can help streamline the patent process and help you get a patent with a lot less headache.  A patent application is a legal document that concludes with a set of claims. These claims are typically written in legal jargon and can be difficult to write and difficult to understand.  The claims are also the primary aspect of the patent application that is examined by the Patent Office examiner, who is typically a patent agent or patent attorney.  The claims also legally define what you are entitled to keep others from doing.

In the opinion of our patent attorneys, it is important to hire a patent attorney or agent to help you write the claims so that you obtain a legally sufficient and valuable asset in your patent.  This can save you time, money in the long run, and hopefully provide you with a more valuable asset for your business and protect your invention from patent infringement.
