Patent Protection Starts Here

A Decade Of Experience Helping Inventors

You have devoted a significant amount of time and resources to the development of your invention. Do not leave the product of your creativity and innovation unprotected. My law firm, Laurie A. Schlichter, PLLC, will advocate for the patent protection you deserve. After ten years of experience, I know how to successfully argue for the grant of a patent. Because of my assistance, inventors worldwide are enjoying the benefits of patent protection for their inventions.

Assistance Throughout The Patenting Process

The process of obtaining a patent involves a number of complex steps. Each step is important and cannot be overlooked. From the first step to the last, I guide my clients through the intricacies of the process. Two steps are especially important:

  • Patent Preparation –  I have prepared patent applications for ten years. I have mastered the ins and outs of the process. Take advantage of my experience and expertise – let me prepare a patent application for you. I will prepare a superior-quality application that thoroughly describes your invention in the manner required by U.S. patent law.
  • Patent Prosecution –  Your patent application is submitted to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and reviewed by a Patent Examiner. Patent prosecution is the process of persuading the Patent Examiner that a patent should issue for your invention. The Examiner argues that your invention is not patent-worthy while I argue that it is. I have proven on dozens of occasions that I can successfully overcome an Examiner’s arguments and realize patent protection for my clients. You can be my next success story.
