Utah Attorneys

Updated on July 8, 2016

Don’t wait to protect your intellectual property, get a patent attorney as early as possible

What is a patent attorney?

Patent attorneys specialize in protecting intellectual property. They work to protect anyone with an innovative idea or invention to keep it from being stolen. Anytime you have a design or idea that needs to be protected from others stealing the idea you have to apply for a patent. Applying and receiving a patent is a highly complicated procedure that requires particular expertise. Using a lawyer that is specially trained will help you to navigate through the process by interpreting different rules, regulations, and laws. A patent attorney will help negotiate contracts, file documents, and represent them during negotiations.

How do I know when is the best time to hire a patent attorney?

Contrary to what many people think, it’s best to consult a Utah patent attorney as early in the process as possible. A lot of individuals think that they need to have their idea or invention completed or at least nearly completed before getting legal help. They fail to consider that someone could have developed something similar to theirs. A good patent lawyer will investigate if there are any patents in place or any applied for that would conflict with their client's product or ideas. By having an expert do the research early on they could potentially save you a lot of wasted time, effort, and money. Get any invention up and ready for being marketed takes a lot of energy and expense which will is lost if you find out that there was already a patent in place that covers your invention.

What can patent attorney’s do to help protect your rights?

Obviously patent attorneys specialize in setting up the proper paperwork to protect any intellectual property you have. One of the biggest mistake people can make is trying to establish a patent on their own or with the cheapest attorney possible. When this happens details can be overlooked leaving openings for competitors. A good patent lawyer in Salt Lake City will be thorough and detailed in protecting you. While it may seem unnecessary to go to such extremes before the product has been tried and tested there are some major issues that can occur. For example, in the event your product becomes profitable and in high demand any loopholes could cost the inventor their rights to their own intellectual property. Making sure that you’re protected is vital in making sure any new idea or development is properly protected.
