The Patent Process
Our Utah patent attorney files patents and trademarks with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and internationally with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). We have IP litigation experience, including domain name disputes and patent and trademark cases. We have experience in representing clients, large and small. Often, clients approach us who have recently been sued for IP infringement in federal courts, such as district courts, the PTAB, the TTAB or the ITC.
A patent is a legal document giving you the legal right to exclude others from making your invention. We can help you protect your IP by preparing utility patent applications on mechanical, electrical, chemical, software, or a method of doing or realizing anything. Our patent attorneys can guide you through the process of preparing filing these documents. We do the same for trademarks. We have experience with utility patent, design patents, and PCT patent applications.
A design patent protects the stylish appearance of a product while a utility patent protects the function, or structure, of a useful device. For instance, a stylish, new pair of sunglasses might be covered by a design patent while a bottling machine would be protected by a utility patent. A PCT patent application is an international patent application. Our intellectual property attorneys can help you file utility patents, designs patents and PCT patent applications.

Patent and IP Success
We handle our clients’ patent and IP needs, including patent and trademark preparation, copyrights, trade secrets, and litigation. We are located in Salt Lake City, which sits in the Tenth Federal Circuit, and which has patent and trademark laws which are more favorable in some respect to other states. We have attorneys who are licensed in Utah, California, Colorado, Texas, Ohio, Nevada and Virginia.
We can help you evaluate your invention and its suitability for prospective patent protection. We regularly move PCT patent applications into the national stage in the U.S. We also regularly handle patent litigation matters, including patent infringement lawsuits in federal court in Utah and across the country. On pages that follow on this website, we have included hundreds of examples of patents, trademarks and lawsuits which we have handled for our clients.
