Why a Patent Attorney?

The process of registering and protecting a patent does not require the aid of a patent attorney. But the process can be confusing, and mistakes can delay the protection of your patent.

So, working with a patent attorney like Cook Alex can make the process smooth. Giving you the peace of mind of knowing that your patents and other intellectual property are secure.

Cook Alex leverages decades of industry knowledge and experience and provides clients with focused services. To help protect their IP and turn their ideas, thoughts, and creativity into competitive advantages.

What do I Need for a Patent?

Certain criteria must be met for a patent application. Cook Alex can help you identify and confirm that your idea meets the criteria for a patent. The requirements for a patent are:

  • The invention must be something that no one has done before
  • There is a clear description of the making and usage of the invention
  • The invention is usable, not just a theory
  • Something not obvious. The invention cannot be a related change to something already invented

By meeting these requirements, an inventor can register and protect their invention with patent law.

While this may seem difficult, remember that you can work with Cook Alex for the registration, protection, litigation, enforcement, even patent prosecution.
