Can I meet with a Patent Attorney in Colorado?

Most questions can be quickly answered with a phone call or email. Trenner Law does not charge clients for routine emails or phone calls to discuss their case.

We understand that at times it is best to meet in person with your patent attorney. For this reason, Trenner Law also offers in-person meetings. Clients can meet with a patent attorney in Golden/Denver West or downtown Denver. Small business clients may also schedule a meeting at their place of business along the Colorado Front Range.

Intellectual Property Law

While the most important type of protect is often a patent or trademark – other, often less expensive types of intellectual property protection may also be available. An experienced intellectual property law attorney can help advise you what types of protection might be appropriate to fully protect your important business assets. Trenner Law Firm has been assisting clients for over 10 years to identify and protect their intellectual property.

Full Patent Application

How do you protect an invention? File a patent application with the US Patent Office. It is important to work with a registered patent attorney to protect your invention.

Provisional Patent Application

The Patent Law was changed in 2013 to be a "First-To-File" patent system. Under the new law, it does not matter who invented first - only who files their patent application first. A provisional patent application can be a fairly quick and cost-effective way to get "Patent Pending" or "Pat. Pend." status for an invention.

Patent Search

Just because you don't see a product in the marketplace (on Amazon or with a Google Search), does not mean that someone has not already filed a patent application. A patent search can help you find if someone else has already applied for a patent for your invention or something similar.

File A Patent Application

How do you protect an invention? File a patent application with the US Patent Office. A provisional patent application can be filed quickly and relatively inexpensively. The provisional patent application will give the inventor one year of patent pending status for everything that is disclosed in the application. But if anything is left out, you may lose rights to patent those aspects of the invention. It is important to work with a registered patent attorney to protect your invention. Learn About Patenting An Invention.

File A Trademark Application

While it may seem easy enough to file a trademark application on your own, important legal rights can be lost by simple mistakes. Worse yet – you might receive a cease and desist letter from a competitor or face an infringement suit in federal court – even if you think no one else is using your mark. Trenner Law Firm has helped clients file and obtain federal trademark registrations, even when others have challenged that use by threatening opposition proceedings. It can be very expensive to hire an attorney after you’ve gotten yourself into a mess. It can cost a lot less in the long run, and you can be sure your rights are protected by working with a trademark attorney from the start. Learn About Trademark Registration.

Copyrights

Copyright is automatic and does not require registration. However, there are good legal reasons to file a copyright registration. An intellectual property law attorney can help you decide what might be copyrightable subject matter, and help you determine when to file copyright registrations. Learn About Copyright Registration.
