Patent law is a type of intellectual property (IP) law concerned with the ownership and protection of original innovations or inventions determined patentable by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). A provisional patent application establishes an early filing date before filing a regular, non-provisional patent application.

Your ideas are valuable. Protect them.

The successful prosecution of patent applications to issued patents is both an art form and a science. When we work with your exceptional ideas, we consider every detail. Not only do our attorneys appreciate the current state of the law and the technology involved, they also consider your business goals and financial resources. And as many of our clients operate in a number of different countries, we routinely coordinate with our associates abroad to obtain substantially uniform protection for inventions in various jurisdictions in which counterpart applications are filed.

We know what it’s like to work in a competitive environment. The work we do paves the way to better business—clear and concise patent applications prepared and prosecuted by TraskBritt add protection and value to your ideas, inventions, and technological developments.

Keep your ideas yours with TraskBritt.
