Provisional Patent Application

​A provisional patent application establishes a priority date, but does not mature into an issued patent. This allows the applicant to file a regular non-provisional patent application within one year, claiming priority to the earlier filed provisional application.   

A provisional application includes a specification, i.e. a written description, and one or more drawings if necessary for the understanding of the invention, but does not require patent claims, as well as other documents associated with non-provisional application filing.

Non-provisional Patent Application

A non-provisional patent application is the normal application, which can eventually mature into an issued patent.  In comparison with the provisional application, a non-provisional application additionally contains formal patent claims, and is filed with an inventor oath or declaration.

We offer a fixed drafting fee for most non-provisional patent applications. For unusually complex inventions we may issue a specific fixed fee quote. 

Patentability Search

We conduct a search of United States issued patents and published patent applications. The resulting search report includes a summary of search methodology, primary references found, and a patentability opinion.
