Patent Attorney and Founder

Yes, you can switch patent attorneys whenever you want. We do it quite often, where we’ll help out and take over. It’s common, unfortunately, in the legal industry for inventors, I mean not just men, anyone that’s using legal services in a traditional type of law firm, communication sucks, it’s not great. To us, that is number one, and so our clients really appreciate and respect that. We’ll get, we’ll sort of take over, and what happens is you simply file a power of attorney change with the USPTO, and it’s unilateral. As long as the inventor signs it off, it goes, and you’ve got new counsel.
