Corporate Chemical Utility Patent Applications
A corporate-end chemical patent
application seeks meaningful professional-level patent protection. The
firm's applications are quality-driven with sensitivity to costs.
Patent application fees depend on the
complexity of subject matter, the prior art against which it will be measured
and other factors.
Based on surveys conducted by the American
Intellectual Property Law Association and other published surveys, $6,000 to
$8,000 is a middle-range cost for a patent application preparation, exclusive of costs
(drawings, USPTO fees) and post-filing.
The middle-range is between entry-level and
definitive applications. While there is no ceiling at the extreme upper
end, the firm's experience has been that some corporate-quality patent applications
are realized for less
than the middle-range costs.
A new patent application typically starts with
an inquiry by telephone or email. Before receiving any sensitive
information, the subject matter must be screened to exclude conflicts with
matters being handled or handled in the past.
Written cost estimates are provided at the
earliest practical point. The estimates provided are serious and
comprehensive. Clients are alerted of any issues that could throw off the
target costs when detected.
Working with the clients is the firm's goal at
every step of the patent application process.
