Patent Information Prices for patent attorney services begin at $1000 and will vary depending on the complexity and time involved in the production of the work product. The Patent and Trademark Office also charges fees for many activities, including the first filing of a new patent application and the issuance of an allowed application. We can discuss the anticipated costs of the filing of your invention’s application before you commit to engage me to prepare and file your patent application. I offer an initial consultation at no charge so that we can discuss your options.
Patent novelty searches start at $400 and can also vary in relation to the complexity of your invention as well as the amount of time required to prepare and file your application. Although not required by the Patent and Trademark Office, a patent search in many instances may help you determine more than just whether or not your invention is new. Feel free to contact me by phone or e-mail, at no initial cost, to discuss your specific situation.
In addition to “how much will this patent application cost?”, a frequently asked question that I get asked, is “can I make payments?” The answer is yes. Please contact me to discuss your situation and in most instances I can assist you with initiating the process to establish and protect your inventorship of your new idea.
Examples of my legal service fees are: $2500 to $3500 in legal fees for a simple mechanical utility patent application, $3500 to $4500 for a simple electro-mechanical device, and $4000 to $6000 for a simple software application. These fees do not include U.S. Patent and Trademark Office fees, foreign patent office fees, drawing fees, and patent prior art search fees, if one or more patent searches are requested.
