PATENT SERVICE TERMS
- For many types of patent services, at our discretion, we may offer fixed fee ( flat fee ) services. Fixed fees may not be available for all patent services, especially when more complex inventions are involved.
- To obtain a no obligation fixed fee quote or hourly rate quote for patent services, please provide us a full disclosure of your invention (if you have not yet filed a patent application for the invention yet), If you have already filed any patent applications for your invention, please provide us the full record of USPTO actions for your invention.
- If possible, please provide us your patent documents by emailing us PDF files. If you’re concerned about email security, you may either fax us your patent documents, or else using a shareware utility you can create an encrypted .exe file containing the PDF files. You can then email us the .exe file, and provide us the password by telephone.
- Our hourly rate fees or fixed fees (when available), represent our professional fees for drafting and filing your USPTO patent documents. Our fixed fees usually do NOT include preparation of your patent drawings, USPTO filing or prosecution fees, patent issuance or maintenance fees, out-of pocket expenses, mailing or electronic filing fees, patent search fees (if requested), etc.
- Our hourly rate fees or fixed fees (when available) for preparing provisional or non-provisional patent applications only include drafting and initially filing your patent application(s).

Our hourly rate or fixed fees do not include any further patent prosecution services which might be required after the initial filing of your patent application.
