Kinne IP Group
Obtaining Patents and Trademarks

The firm has extensive expertise in obtaining patents and trademark registrations. For patents, we work with inventors to determine whether there are any immediate deadlines to be met, whether a search of the prior art is appropriate and what information is available to be put into a patent application. We discuss the legal requirements for patentability and the types of information that must go into a patent application. Costs and timing, both immediate and downstream, are discussed before the work begins.

The firm's trademark work is equally interactive. The firm can help clients select a trademark or it can help protect a trademark already in use. We work with clients to determine whether a trademark clearance search is warranted, and proceed to file trademark applications as appropriate. Again, costs and timing, both immediate and downstream, are discussed before the work begins.

To enable the client to develop its intellectual property protection overseas, the firm works with the client's business leaders to identify the advantages, disadvantages, risks and costs associated with seeking foreign intellectual property protection. The firm has extensive experience with many different types of foreign patent applications and with many different foreign associates. Currently, the firm has patent applications pending all over the world.
