Greenbaum P.C. is happy to offer independent inventors and small companies the opportunity to file a Provisional Patent Application for a flat fee of between $1500-3000*. A Provisional Patent Application is the fastest and least expensive way to get on file with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO,) and get “patent pending” status. A Provisional Patent locks in an early filing date and can be a real deterrent against potential infringers. Many inventors and corporations file Provisional Patents while they do market and product development research on a product. Further many product development experts will not enter prototyping discussions until a Provisional Patent is on file. It is important to understand that in order to acquire the full benefits of patent protection, a Utility Patent must be filed within 1 year of filing the Provisional Patent. In many cases Greenbaum P.C. can draft and file a Provisional Patent in 2 weeks or less. 24-hour rush filing is available for an additional fee.
*Plus government filing fee.
