We’re proud to help the next generation of inventors and entrepreneurs obtain the protection they need at a price they can afford.

Online patent services can help you protect your intellectual property from the comfort of your home.

What to Look for in Online Patent Services

Applying for a patent isn’t something anyone undertakes lightly. If you’re thinking of patenting your invention, you’ve probably spent months, years, or even decades perfecting your designs. Don’t let your hard work go to waste. 

Many online patent services bill themselves as comprehensive but only offer support for part of the overall process. However, most of these services can’t actually provide legal advice. In fact, many of them aren’t actually law firms. 

As you consider your options, look for a patent attorney who provides: 

#1: Fully remote assistance 

US patent law falls under federal jurisdiction. That means that your attorney should be able to help you from anywhere in the country. No one wants to spend hours driving to an office and waiting for an appointment just to hand-sign documents. We offer unmatched convenience: our services are fully remote, which allows you to get the legal advice you need to complete your patent application from the comfort of your couch.

#2: Well-rounded attorneys with a range of expertise 

Many people associate the patent process with science or tech experts who possess years of industry experience. And many big downtown law firms serve one or two huge corporate clients (Microsoft, Apple, Google, Facebook, and the like). The truth is that a lot of inventors are just regular men and women who are creative and passionate enough to find new and better ways to do things. We represent solo inventors, start-ups, and small businesses because we know that’s where the heart of innovation and change lies. We’ve represented clients involved in everything from agriculture to social networking and dealt with products as diverse as the people behind them. 

#3: Actionable search support 

The patent and prior art search, coupled with a legal opinion on patentability, will be one of the most significant factors in charting your path toward patent approval. Unfortunately, some attorneys expect you to complete this search yourself. We don’t. Instead, we uncover any existing art or patents that could put your application at risk and help you overcome those challenges and give you the legal opinion on what to do with those search results. 

#4: Transparent flat-fee pricing 

Obtaining a patent is never cheap, but you should be able to estimate your overall costs when it comes to legal counsel. No billable hours, no surprise bills at the end of the month. At Bold Patents, our structured pricing system begins with a $225 consultation. After that, we’ll walk you through the flat fee for the next step, so you can expect as you move through the process. 

#5: Clear, end-to-end guidance 

Your attorney will provide a one-stop shop for everything you need to complete your application and receive patent approval. At Bold Patents, we consider every client relationship a partnership, and we’ll support you at every stage of the process, including patent searches, applications, and more.

Why Choose Bold Patents? 

Many online patent services take a hands-off approach. They’ll give you the information and resources you need to obtain a patent but no guidance. At Bold Patents, we don’t just supply information—we show you how to use it. 

If you choose Bold Patents, we’ll connect you with a licensed attorney who abides by our core values: big thinking, open-mindedness, light-heartedness, and dedication. We’re in this business because we care, and it shows in our results. Although patent denials are common, our approach has a 77% success rate that our competitors just can’t beat.
