The legal landscape around obtaining and using patent protection is complex, so it can be difficult to know how to go about getting a patent. Whilst legal advice is available, the cost of obtaining such legal advice can be a deterrent to moving forward with protecting a new idea.
We are often contacted by companies and private individuals who want to take the first steps in obtaining patent protection for a new invention. Some are entirely new to the process. Others would like to do it more efficiently and effectively.
With this in mind, we have written a booklet that will help your business take the first three steps towards obtaining patent protection for a new invention in a sensible and cost efficient manner. The booklet contains basic patent guidance and further documentation which includes questions and prompts for anyone completing the form to record basic information regarding their new invention.
You can access the booklet, which we are happy to provide free of charge, via this link here.
