How It Works


The first step in obtaining a patent is to consult with a licensed patent professional. During the consultation, the practitioner will assess the potential patent and provide advice on the patentability of the invention. The practitioner will also outline the patent process and provide an estimate of cost and timeline for the patent application.


The second step in obtaining a patent is to strategize and develop a patent strategy. This involves researching prior art, preparing patent drawings, and considering the patent’s value proposition. This strategy will also weigh the patent’s business objectives, such as whether the patent is intended to be defensive or offensive.

Take Action

The third step in obtaining a patent is to take action. This involves filing the patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, responding to any office actions, and monitoring the patent’s progress. Once the patent is granted, the applicant should take steps to enforce the patent and ensure that any violations are addressed and the patent’s rights are protected.


A patent agent is a professional who is registered with the patent office to assist inventors in the patent process. They have technical and legal aptitudes but may not be licensed attorneys. While both patent agents and patent attorneys are practitioners who assist with patent matters, only attorneys can provide legal advice beyond the scope of patent prosecution.

It’s advisable to engage a patent agent early in the invention process, preferably before disclosing the invention to the public. This ensures timely protection of your intellectual property rights and allows the agent to guide you through the patent process from the beginning.

A patent agent is a specialized professional who can help you navigate the complicated patent process, preventing costly mistakes. Hiring a patent agent can save you money compared to hiring a patent attorney, as they usually charge lower rates for the same services. They help you secure your patent in a timely manner, so you can start to benefit financially from your invention sooner. 

Yes, patent agents are equipped to handle international patent applications. They can assist in filing international applications under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) or work with foreign associates to seek patent protection in specific countries.

The patent application process can vary, but it often takes several years to obtain a granted patent. Factors affecting the timeline include the field and complexity of the invention, the backlog of the patent office, and the need for revisions or responses during the prosecution phase.

The patent agent will work closely with you to gather detailed information about your invention. They will then prepare a comprehensive patent application, including a detailed description, claims defining the scope of the invention, and any necessary drawings or diagrams.

While patent agents cannot represent clients in court or provide legal advice outside the scope of patent prosecution, they can assist attorneys during patent litigation by providing technical knowledge, analyzing patent claims, and conducting research.

The cost of patent agent services can vary depending on the complexity of the invention, the scope of work required, and the experience of the agent. It’s best to consult with the patent agent to discuss their fee structure and the estimated costs involved.

A patent agent can conduct a patentability search to assess the novelty and patentability of your invention. They will analyze existing patents, scientific literature, and other sources to see if your invention is already patented or disclosed. If your invention is new, useful, and non-obvious, then it may be eligible for a patent.

If your patent application receives a rejection or objection from the patent office, a patent agent can help respond to the office action. They will analyze the objections, prepare legal arguments, and present a persuasive case to overcome the rejections and advance the application.
