Why Hire A Patent Attorney?
The ARTISTRY of a skilled patent attorney is in plain view when she or he meets with your inventors and can translate a couple hours’ discussion into a short series of claims. In the software environment, this requires a high level of technical and claims writing expertise.
The true VALUE of a patent attorney becomes more obvious after the filing when you get that rejection letter, which in greater than 95% of the cases, will arrive in your mailbox. With an allowed rate of only 50%, your response to the rejection, a narrowing of the claims, and the follow-up discussions with the USPTO patent examiner are critical.
