Unfortunately, the process of patent procurement and enforcement is incredibly time-consuming and can be expensive. Obtaining patents on important and valuable inventions at the USPTO and abroad can be difficult and costly. It is also common for patent licensing and litigation to consume many years, with legal fees and expenses reaching or exceeding millions of dollars for a well-litigated case pursued through trial and appeal. Patent litigation is one of the most complex and expensive litigation fields. Due to these high costs, small businesses and individual inventors typically forego obtaining and enforcing patents. As a result, the patent business has historically been dominated by large corporations, leaving unprotected the many important inventions of individuals and small businesses.
The Law Offices of Lisa & Lesko, LLC actively represents individual inventors and small businesses in patent enforcement programs on a contingent fee basis. The particular contingency fee varies on a case-by-case basis. Depending on the case, we also have access to expense funding options for clients with limited financial resources. Whether or not the client is responsible to pay certain expenses will be discussed at the start of any new case and communicated clearly to new clients.
Our firm’s successful representation of clients in the past means that we have the resources to forego hourly rate work in favor of contingent fee representation. By doing so, important inventions that would otherwise be abandoned can be protected and successfully licensed or enforced. To discuss your inventions with a member of the firm, please call or email info@PatentIt.com.
