Is it time you protect your invention with a patent? If you are unsure, our patent lawyers in Pasadena can help you. What is a patent and what can it do for you? A patent issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office will grant you, the patent owner, “the right to exclude others from making, using, offering for sale or selling the invention throughout the United States or importing the invention into the United States.”

Types of Patents

Depending on your invention, our intellectual property attorneys will guide you to choosing the right patent for your product, a Utility Patent or a Design Patent.
