Do I Require a Local Arkansas Patent Attorney?

You Require the Right Patent Attorney:
One That Concentrates On Innovators, Start-Ups, and also Small Businesses

The majority of local Patent Attorneys in Arkansas concentrate on providing services to large companies that ensure a stream of patent work every year. They are not enthusiastic about assisting individual inventors and business owners with a single invention. Therefore, individuals and smaller businesses are in most cases palmed off to an unskilled junior Patent Attorney in the Firm with incomplete training and negligible oversight.

As rarefied as Patent Attorneys are, even fewer Arkansas Patent Attorneys focus on small clients, and consequently they are virtually never found locally. That’s why Patent Law Firms with an entrepreneurial emphasis advertise nationally, because there are not nearly enough sole inventors and business owners in any one area to sustain such a particularly specialized law firm for a Patent Attorney in Arkansas.

Patent Attorneys are Licensed to Practice Nationally — You’re Not Restricted Exclusively to Arkansas Patent Attorneys

Patent Law is based on Federal Law, not State Law. Every Patent Attorney is licensed to practice nationally by passing the Patent Bar Examination offered by the United States Patent & Trademark Office. Locating a Patent Attorney in Arkansas is not necessary.

Notable Patents from Arkansas Inventors

wonder horse patent illustration filed by a Patent Attorney in Arkansas

William BaltzPocahontas, AR
William Baltz invented the Wonder Horse as a Christmas gift for his 3-year-old son, Billy, in December 1939. The first version suspended the horse from a wood frame using heavy springs, and he named it the “Wonder Horse” because the “Wonder State” was Arkansas’ state nickname. Soon the toy was being mass-produced and became a favorite of children all over the world.

Ben PearsonPine Bluff, AR
Called the “father of modern archery”, Ben Pearson designed and built much of the machinery enabling the first mass production of bows, arrows, and related archery tackle. Due to this new revolution in manufacturing, the average sports enthusiast could afford quality archery products. His company, founded in 1927, is the oldest bow company in America and still sells archery products today. “What Henry Ford did for mass producing the automobile, Ben Pearson did for mass producing archery equipment.”

WHAT OUR ARKANSAS CLIENTS ARE SAYING

  • Don’t waste your time looking for another patent attorney.

    Don’t waste your time looking for another patent attorney. Every other patent attorney that I talked to was all about how much money that they could receive before the process even started. When I talked to Russ, I explained to him that I had a pregnant wife, was a compensated veteran from the war in Iraq, and I was working the best I could to support my family while attending night classes in college. I told him that I had a wonderful idea called the CORD CUFF, but I knew that I couldn’t pay the upfront money it takes to get things off the ground. Russ simply said first off, "I want to thank you for your service to our country, and congrats on the upcoming child".

    He took the time to explain to me that the steps we have to take don’t have to be rushed. I could have never done this without this compassionate man. He took the time whenever I called to answer any question, and assured me that everything is under control. When money was tight, Russ would say, "Just send in a little payment here and there, but put that family first". He said, "I have you covered on this end". We started this process in 2009, and I am proud to say that my Ribbon Copy of my Patent on the CORD CUFF was sent to me by overnight delivery. I can’t say enough about him and his firm. ... Read More When the Patent Office made a mistake with the paperwork, he and his people were right on top of things to ensure that the problem was corrected with perfect results. He even paid money out of his own pocket to fix the mess. I am truly satisfied with everything Russ Weinzimmer and his firm have done to help realize my dream for me and my family.

  • I got my patent allowed with only ONE Office Action.

    Russ spent a lot of time explaining patents and the process to me. He kept me well-informed along the way and was very helpful. I got my patent allowed with only ONE Office Action. That saved me at least $6,000 based on what usually happens. Thank you Russ. This will be a real game changer for me!

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.

Trademark a Name AND a Logo for Your Business

Trademark a Name AND a Logo for Your Business

Failing to trademark a name and logo leaves your business vulnerable to copycats who could use your logo with a different name.

If another company uses your trademark, either your name or logo, your company can lose sales and reputation. When customers buy from a competitor because they’re confused by the infringement of your trademark, you lose sales that should have been yours. And bad knockoffs using your trademark can ruin your reputation in the marketplace if customers incorrectly associate their bad experience with your company.

For trademarks, you need to separately protect all your branding: separately trademark a name and logo, as well as any slogans or catch-phrases.

Class Action Lawsuit Alleges InventHelp Patent Searches are Purposefully Incomplete

Class Action Lawsuit Alleges InventHelp Patent Searches are Purposefully Incomplete

A Pennsylvania class action lawsuit alleges that InventHelp made false representations that consumer ideas were eligible for patents and misled them into purchasing services agreements.

The lawsuit claims that InventHelp’s purposefully incomplete patent searches and basic information package reports are part of InventHelp’s ploy to convince consumers that their inventions are marketable and/or patentable, and con them into signing contracts for more expensive Submission Services. The “Preliminary Patentability Opinions” claim that customers’ proposed inventions are eligible to receive patents, when, in fact, there often already exist “dead ringer” patents that would prevent these inventions from receiving patents.

Critical Patent Attorney Shortage Will Make it Harder to Find One

Critical Patent Attorney Shortage Will Make it Harder to Find One

The number of Patent Attorneys is rapidly declining, at the same time as demand for patents is rising. From 2008 to 2018, the number of new Patent Attorneys fell by 50%. From 2009 to 2015, the number of Patent Applications increased by 30% and the number of issued US Patents increased 70%.

Patent Attorneys account for more than 15% of law firm job openings while representing less than 2% of all lawyers in the U.S. As more of the already dwindling supply of Patent Attorneys are hired by big law firms and by large corporations and universities as in-house Patent Attorneys, there are fewer and fewer available to work with individual inventors and small companies.
