Patent law, intellectual property & more



Understanding the intricacies of intellectual property law is never easy. However, with Peter’s assistance, you’ll learn everything you need to know to protect your innovation. All services provided are customized to your needs with the goal of making your business innovations proprietary and more valuable.  Services are provided on an hourly or project-basis.


Intellectual Property Services

Intellectual property (i.e., patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets) can be a valuable asset to any business. Even minor innovations can be profitable when implemented within the scope of a full business plan. 

Tailored counseling, planning and implementation of intellectual property rights can include the filing and prosecution of patent applications and/or trademark applications. For more information on how to patent a product and protect your investment, read this.

These services are offered on a fixed fee basis and quotes will be given ahead of the patent or trademark process. Contact Peter to learn more.
