Intellectual Property Services for YOUR Needs Intellectual property (i.e., patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets) can be a valuable asset and should be considered as part of any good business plan. Even minor innovations can be profitable when implemented as part of one's overall business plan.
Protecting intellectual property is a critical aspect of a company's growth. As an intellectual property attorney in Williamsburg, VA, I tailor my counseling to the individual client's needs and business aspirations. Once an intellectual property plan has been devised, I work with the client to secure the appropriate intellectual property rights via the filing and prosecution of patent applications and/or trademark applications. (View my tutorials for more information on how to patent a product and protect your interests in that investment.)
At the outset, I work with the client and their particular business plan to provide an intellectual property "road map" tailored for the business's particular goals. This typically includes a consultation to understand the business plan followed by a discussion and analysis of the various forms of intellectual property (e.g., patent applications, trademark applications, etc.) as they might apply to the business plan.
All of the above is done with the goal of making your business's innovations proprietary and, ultimately, more valuable. Fees can be fixed or hourly.
Moving ahead with the intellectual property "plan" typically involves patent and/or trademark searches, patent applications and/or trademark applications, and continuing prosecution. I offer services in all of these areas with the vast majority of cases being handled on a fixed fee basis. That is, I will quote a fee before each stage of the application or prosecution process, and will only begin work after the client accepts the quoted fee. The client knows the cost up front. I understand how important cost predictability is for the small to mid-size company.
