Our experience is unparalleled.
What is a non-provisional patent application?
If, after overcoming office actions, your non-provisional patent application is granted, you will now receive a patent. (The average length of time it takes the USPTO to issue a patent today is 23 months.)
A non-provisional patent application is the only type of patent application that will result in the issuance of utility patent. Your provisional patent application acts as a placeholder, allowing you to claim an earlier filing date while you gain “patent pending” status for your invention.
What is the inventRight PPA process?
In this program, you work with a patent agent to draft your provisional patent application. First, a professional patent searching expert will conduct a worldwide patent search. Then, a patent agent will review the materials you supply them with as well as the results from the patent search to craft your PPA.
The patent agent will file the application electronically with the USPTO on your behalf. Once your PPA is filed with the USPTO, you will receive a filing receipt electronically and your application will be affective. InventRight is not a law firm and is not engaged in practice of law. We do not and cannot practice before the US patent office and cannot offer legal consultation, advice or opinions.
