Should I Hire a Patent Litigation Attorney Before I Need One?

A patent litigation attorney can ensure your patent filings are proper and ready to stand up to challenges.

Although the U.S Patent and Trademark Office doesn’t require business owners to have a patent litigation attorney to file a patent, there are numerous reasons why you should hire an attorney before you need one. Most business owners have an understandably restricted budget, but your startup’s intellectual property is vital to its overall success. Our attorneys understand that your startup probably has budget constraints, and we keep that in perspective throughout the process.

Patent application with a patent litigation lawyer

You can draft a provisional or non-provisional patent application without the help of an attorney. However, by ignoring the intricacies of proper filing of the application, it is possible to leave out some of the necessary rules and statutes. The truth is, patent litigation is not a very ‘user friendly’ field of law and can be frustrating to the layperson. Our experienced attorneys will help you create a seamless patent application, relieving you of an enormous headache.

Personal contact with a reliable patent attorney

The moment you hire one of our patent litigation attorneys, you get personal contact. In essence, we will hold your hand all through the patent process. Whatever questions you could be harboring, feel free to ask us. Additionally, you get to access valuable information concerning your business and what you need to protect it. You could be thinking that your business needs a copyright when what you really need is a trademark or a patent, or the other way round. For example, if you are a computer programmer and have created a unique code, getting a patent will be more efficient than getting a copyright.

When you come to us, we will pinpoint the exact protection you need and guide you through the process of acquiring it.

Prevention is better than cure

You’ve probably never seen the need to hire a patent litigation attorney, but the right one can help you when your patents, copyrights or trademarks are at risk of infringement. Don’t wait until you are neck-deep in the situation to start searching for a patent attorney.

We can help you when:

  • Someone snipes your logo or invention
  • Another company uses your trademark
  • Your photos are republished online
  • Any other infringement of your trademark takes place

The bottom line

It is never too early to protect your business or invention. If you feel you took too long to act and are on the verge of throwing in the towel, don’t give up. You could still have a chance of receiving compensation by enforcing your rights. Learn more about our patent litigation attorneys by contacting the Wilbanks Law Firm, P.C. online.
