Patent and Trademark Services in Tampa

As a virtual law firm, Bold Patents helps clients with patents and trademarks in Tampa, Florida and throughout the U.S.

Tampa has large companies in a range of fields, such as fertilizer and chemicals, healthcare, retail, and entertainment. Moreover, local educational institutions and nearby MacDill Air Force Base create huge demand for products and services. These large businesses, colleges, and government facilities are not just generators of intellectual property (IP), but work with innovative small and medium businesses as vendors and contractors.

Tampa has a business-friendly environment with low taxes that provides entrepreneurs the opportunity to start a new business. Whether the business provides goods or services, a Tampa patent attorney or Tampa trademark attorney can help protect the company’s novel inventions and distinctive brands.

What Makes Bold Patents Different

Our firm works hard to understand our clients’ goals and educate startup inventors in how the patent process can help them reach those goals. Through this process, we work one-on-one with our clients to develop a strategy to leverage innovation into a business or product.

Bold Patents provides comprehensive patent and trademark assistance to its clients. With our assistance, our clients can obtain and protect IP rights in their innovations.

Bold Patents takes a broad view. Rather than focusing solely on the IP, our lawyers help our clients understand how patents and trademarks fit into our clients’ businesses. To do this, we work closely with each client’s business management team to understand the core concepts of the technology.

With this understanding of the invention, we can provide the company an analysis of the patentability and market readiness of the invention.

By developing a deep understanding of our clients and their technologies, we strive to develop a long-term attorney-client relationship so we can provide our clients with the strongest patent and trademark protection possible.

Tampa Patent Lawyer Services

Services from a Tampa patent lawyer from Bold Patents will cover three general areas:

Patentability: An invention must be novel and non-obvious to be patented. To assess patentability, Bold Patents, a Tampa patent law firm, conducts a patent search and compares the invention to the prior art. Novelty means that the invention includes at least one feature not found in the prior art and non-obviousness means the invention is not a combination of, or variation on, features found in the prior art.

Patent drafting and prosecution: The patent filing process begins by drafting a patent application. A patent lawyer uses the patentability analysis to focus the patent application’s claims on the patentable features of the invention. After filing, the patent lawyer shepherds the patent application through the US Patent Office.

Patent infringement: A patent is infringed when a patented invention is made, used, sold, offered for sale, or imported without the patent owner’s permission. A patent attorney can analyze a potentially infringing use for an accused infringer or a patent owner to assess the merits of the patent infringement claim.

The Patent Process

Bold Patents is a Tampa patent law firm that can guide inventors through the entire patent process including:

Before filing the patent: Our lawyers can help a business evaluate the business case for filing and obtaining patents. A Tampa US patent attorney can help businesses determine when an invention is not eligible for a patent or will not produce a return on investment even if patented. If a business case can be made for filing a patent application, a patent attorney can help the business set its expectations for the invention’s patentability and readiness for patenting, as well as the scope of rights that might accompany a patent.

Filing the patent: Drafting a patent application is only the first step in the patent process. The patent application is assigned to a patent examiner. The examiner searches the patent office’s records to determine if the invention is patentable. An office action rejecting or objecting to the application is issued in most cases. A Tampa US patent lawyer works with the inventors to prepare amendments and arguments in response to the office action. When a patent examiner issues a final rejection, the patent attorney can present the client with options for continuing the pursuit of a patent for the invention.

After patent issuance: Monetizing a US patent often involves licensing and enforcing patents. Licensing the rights to produce and sell the patented invention can provide the business with a steady stream of income without investing in manufacturing. A Tampa US patent attorney can develop a licensing program, including negotiating and drafting licenses. Similarly, if a competitor sells the patented invention without permission, a patent owner can hire a Tampa patent attorney to investigate and analyze the infringing product.

Tampa Trademark Lawyer Services

A Tampa trademark lawyer from Bold Patents can help an entrepreneur protect the distinctive features of the business’s brands. These identifiers can include the designs, words, product packaging, and product configurations that help consumers distinguish between the company’s products and services from its competitors’ products and services.

Services from a Tampa trademark law firm include:

Protectability: A Tampa US trademark attorney not only helps a client to protect its marks but can help a business build a stronger and more protectable brand. By strategically selecting marks and using them correctly, a business can enlarge both the quantity and quality of its trademark rights.

Acquisition: A business acquires some common law trademark rights from use. However, registration filed by a Tampa US trademark lawyer with the U.S. or state government can vastly expand the scope of a business’s trademark rights. A Tampa trademark attorney helps clients assess their needs for trademarks to protect their brands and register trademarks to meet those needs. For businesses that provide goods and services in foreign countries, a Tampa US trademark attorney can counsel and assist clients to expand their registrations overseas.

Infringement: Trademarks and service marks are infringed when competitors use a mark that is confusingly similar to the trademark owner’s mark. When a potentially infringing use is identified, Bold Patents, a Tampa trademark law firm, can analyze the infringement and provide an assessment of the strength of the trademark infringement claim.
