Our experienced team can help protect your interests and work with you to create the most advantageous strategies for your intellectual property.
Types of Patents
A patent provides legal protection for a product or invention and is essential if you want to commercialize your creation. Before you apply for a patent, it is important to know which kind of patent you need. There are several types of patents, such as the following.
- Provisional patents
A simple patent claim can be filed, allowing the creator to use the term “patent pending” until a formal patent claim is filed.
- Non-provisional or utility patents
This is the standard patent that is reviewed by the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office).
- Design patents
A design patent covers the appearance of a product and prevents competitors from releasing similar looking products.
We are an intellectual property (IP) law firm that can help you identify the type of patent that will best serve your needs. We also work with clients to formulate the most effective strategies for releasing new products, licensing, and prosecution.
Patent litigation occurs when you suspect someone has infringed on your patent or when someone accuses you of infringing on theirs. A patent case can involve many intricate points regarding product features, design, and intellectual property rights. Not having the right legal representation makes it more challenging and less likely that you’ll end up with a satisfactory result.
The patent litigation process often includes several stages. You need a solid pre-trial strategy that calculates all variables so you know whether it’s worth it to move forward. Many patent cases are settled before or during litigation. With the help of an experienced patent infringement law firm, Tampa area (and beyond) businesses can get the most lucrative (and/or least costly) settlements. Whether your case goes to trial, settles or you want to appeal an existing decision, it is important to have the best possible legal representation. Our patent attorneys will create a customized strategy to protect your interests.

“In my opinion, all previous advances in the various lines of invention will appear totally insignificant when compared with those which the present century will witness. I almost wish that I might live my life over again to see the wonders which are at the threshold.”
