It takes an attorney with deep knowledge of technology and many years of experience in that area of law to write and file a solid patent application for modern technology. Although clients in technical fields have many good choices in Chicago and throughout the country, finding an experienced and qualified Patent Attorney who understands your business and technology can be a daunting task. To accomplish that task, Cook Alex employs a proprietary process to secure the protection that‘s needed to make your technology commercially successful.

If Kevlar can stop a bullet, it can damn sure stop a blitz. —Rob Vito, to Wired Magazine, on his EXO Skeleton Kevlar padding.

Typically, the most expedient route to putting patent protection into place is via the preparation and filing of a provisional patent application. For an affordable cost, a provisional application filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office will preserve, for one year, the ability to later pursue patents in the U.S. and foreign countries. During the year the provisional application is pending, you can freely share your concepts with potential business partners, and if the commercial prospects appear promising, you can proceed with the filing of a more formal, non-provisional patent application, which will be examined and, once granted, result in an enforceable U.S. patent.
