Cost For a Patent

Posted by Michael Shimokaji | Mar 19, 2014 | 0 Comments

Question: I want to get a patent but it looks too expensive. I talked to one lawyer and I was told it would be a minimum of 25000 dollars and it would take 5 years with NO guarantee. Is that right? This would be for a utility patent for a software product.

Answer: The lawyer is correct – there is no guarantee that you will end up with a patent. But prices can vary widely and you can reasonably expect to receive fixed attorney fees at each stage of the patent process.
