Patent Lawyers in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC
Inventors who obtain a patent are granted the exclusive right to make, sell and use their invention for a set period of time. This right comes directly from the federal government. At General Counsel, P.C., our lawyers have an extensive understanding of the patent law process and will help you gain protection for your creations.
Patent Prosecution and Intellectual Property Rights
The patent attorneys at General Counsel, P.C., can help you understand the process of filing a patent and can guide you through the steps of safeguarding your intellectual property in a timely manner. We have helped clients prosecute (draft) patents for:
Computer software and hardware
Chemical formulas and processes
Unlike copyright protection, a patent must be filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in order to obtain the benefit of patent protection. Our patent lawyers will file all of the necessary documentation with the correct offices in order to secure your rights under U.S. patent law. We will also work with you to decide whether additional steps should be taken to protect your intellectual property, such as protecting a trademark or trade secrets.
Patent Litigation and Patent Infringement
Filing for your patent is not the last step of securing your rights under patent law. If people begin to make, use or sell your patented item without your permission, they have infringed on your rights. You must take immediate action to protect your interests. If you experience a patent infringement, our knowledgeable patent litigators are prepared to protect your intellectual property. Your business success is our success.
