The preparation and prosecution of a patent application requires an extensive knowledge of patent law, and Patent Office practice. Now, because the actions required to secure a patent are very time-dependent and costly, it is advisable to contact a professional patent practitioner any time before you should take an action in regard with your invention.

There are lots of people, pros and cons, arguing on the issue to seek or not professional assistance when dealing with patent matters. In no way we encourage you to turn away from consulting professionals. However, until you will engage your money in a business like, you should be able to answer yourself to a few essential questions:

  • Do I really have an invention?
  • Where is my niche-market to commercialise my invention?
  • How much I can to afford myself to spend before having any returns?
  • What is the level of my understanding in dealing with patents?
We gues that you would probably not want to spend long hours at someone else billing rate explaining simple background information to understand what is your invention about. On the other hand, do not expect to find too much through a free initial consultation when you try to aproach an attorney or other patent professional. Even stating a formal opinion it is time consuming that business people can not afford to give it away for free.

Now, to choose a patent professional it is not easy. One of the best ways to find a good patent agent or attorney with a technical background consistent with the technology of your invention, is by a referral.
A very efficient alternative may be to utilise the capabilities of a professional searcher who can help you to determine the patentability of your patent, and whether pursuing a patent is right for you early on - before you accrue enormous cost, or worse, at the risk of jeopardizing patentable invention. Now, How to Hire an Attorney...(?!)
