Applying for a utility patent can be confusing and time-consuming, but LegalZoom simplifies the process. With LegalZoom’s full utility patent service, you’ll receive a consultation with a USPTO-registered patent attorney or agent, technical drawings of your invention by a professional illustrator, as well as preparation and filing of your completed utility patent application with the USPTO by a patent attorney or agent.
Inventors who are granted a utility patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), have the right to prevent anyone else from making, selling, using or importing the invention without the inventor’s consent. The first step in our utility patent process involves completing a simple online questionnaire and submitting sketches or drawings of your invention. Next, a USPTO-registered patent attorney or agent will provide a patent consultation by phone.
For an additional charge, we can conduct a comprehensive patent search for published patents and applications in your field of invention to help avoid conflicts. Based on your description and sketches, a technical illustrator will create up to four pages of professional patent drawings. Get started filing a utility patent with the USPTO through LegalZoom.
