Patent Information for Inventors

A patent portfolio is often THE MOST IMPORTANT asset for a high technology company. Without patent protection, there is little a company can do to protect its innovations. Patents become increasingly valuable when raising venture capital, financing or considering an IPO. In fact, one of the most frequently asked questions by investors when considering an investment is whether the company's methods or compositions are covered by U.S. Patents.

U.S. Patents are available for useful, new and nonobvious products or processes. Even improvements to current inventions or technologies may be patentable. In fact, a complex system may result in multiple U.S. Patents. A patent attorney can help identify the patentable components that make up a system or can help patent the system itself.

Patent Attorney Raymond Wagenknecht represents San Diego's life sciences and high technology industries. Although his patent preparation fees are significantly less expensive than most firms, his personalized service is what truly sets him apart from others. Raymond believes in working closely with scientists and business leaders to provide quality patent applications that provide an economic advantage for the company. Business executives and senior scientific officers will appreciate the prompt and personalized service they receive including charts and reports mapping out patent strategies and patent portfolios.

Why shouldn't Inventors prepare and file patent applications themselves?

Well, although many inventors have tremendous scientific abilities, a patent is a legal document and should be prepared by a licensed patent attorney. The legal implications of using particular terms may not be apparent to a scientist. Patent attorneys attended law school, are licensed lawyers and are educated in a field of science. This is not say that an Inventor's input is not welcome. It most certainly is! We believe Patent Attorneys should work closely with scientists to ensure the science is accurate and with the business groups to ensure corporate goals are being advanced.

Patent infringement lawsuits include three (3) stages:

  • Determining the scope of the claims of a patent
  • Comparing an accused device or method to the claims &
  • Damages
