Strategic Patent Law Protects Your Idea From Every Angle

TECHNICAL STRATEGY

We quickly understand your invention and protect it as broadly as possible so competitors can’t work around your patent.

Our extensive and advanced ‎technical background enables us to work with world-class engineers, doctors, and inventors on any technology from the simplest to the most complex. Being technologists as well as lawyers, we can speak with inventors in their own language, putting them at ease and saving time while working to prepare new patent applications.

LEGAL STRATEGY

Litigation is expensive, even if you win. Our goal is to write patent applications so clear and legally sound that competitors won’t attempt a lawsuit in the first place.

Invention marketing companies and patent agents are not law firms. Without a lawyer ensuring the quality of your patent application, critical details could be missed that would invalidate your patent and render it worthless. ‎Russ Weinzimmer, owner of the firm, thoroughly reviews and revises as needed all patent applications before filing to make sure they meet the high standard for his firm. You benefit from decades of legal experience from a senior attorney.

BUSINESS STRATEGY

We write your patent application with your business goals in mind and offer services to commercialize your invention after your patent application is filed.

Most other law firms consider only the technical and legal aspects of patent writing, because they don’t have the business and entrepreneurial experience that we do.

We identify the value to protect in your invention using our business insight. When writing your patent application, we apply language from advertising, sales, and marketing to help the reader rapidly understand and appreciate the value of your invention, making it easier to attract investors and negotiate licensing deals.

After your patent application is filed, we can help you build a ‎strategic roadmap to either license your invention to another company or maximize its value within your own business.

Big Law Firms Cater to Big Clients

Small inventor ignored by big firm

Typical patent law firms cannot survive working only with local inventors and small companies. There simply aren’t enough of them in their local area.

Instead, those patent firms target larger local companies that provide a steady stream of patent work year after year.

This means individual inventors and small companies are usually passed off to inexperienced junior attorneys with inadequate training and oversight.

We Serve Smaller Clients That Larger Firms Neglect

Since we specialize in working with individual inventors and small companies, we provide an array of legal and business services that are tailored to meet the unique needs of individual inventors and small companies.

The Cheri Hill Show Radio Interview: Trademarks

The Cheri Hill Show invited expert Russ Weinzimmer to discuss trademarks and how they can help your business. A trademark is one of the most important business assets that a company will ever own, because it identifies and distinguishes the company and its products or services in the marketplace from its competitors. Therefore, it is good practice for all business owners to take sufficient action to protect and enforce valuable trademarks.

How to Register Your Trademark

By registering your trademarks, you can assert them in court to stop someone from creating confusion in the market around your goods or services. You don’t want to lose your company’s good reputation because of another company’s bad business practices. You don’t want to lose business because another company is selling goods that appear to be from your company. You need to separately protect each element (ie the logo and the words(s) included in a logo), because each is separately “stealable.”

Why You Need a Good Professional Patent Search

Why You Need a Good Professional Patent Search

Only new inventions can be patented. Before spending money on a patent application, an effective patent search must be performed to see if your invention already exists. Even if the search does not find your invention exactly, it is important to find the most similar prior art which effectively forms a fence around your invention in idea space. After your patent issues, all of the prior art cited to the Examiner acts as a shield against invalidating your patent in the future.

Should I File a Provisional Patent Application?

Should I File a Provisional Patent Application?

Filing a provisional patent application is almost always a bad idea. Preserving your exclusive rights to your invention through a patent depends on meeting specific deadlines when filing a patent application. Relying on the filing date of a provisional can mean that you end up completely losing all of your patent rights. A provisional can also reduce the value of your issued patent and can make it harder to license or sell your invention to other companies.
