Garvey, Smith, Nehrbass & North, L.L.C. Patent Attorneys

General Info

Intellectual property law – it’s what we do – it’s all we do.

Our law practice is limited to patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, and related intellectual property matters.

Intellectual property rights are often time sensitive. You may have a deadline that expires today. We suggest that you call us today to find out whether you have an urgent deadline for protecting your intellectual property rights.

Due to recent changes in US patent law, it is more important than ever to file patent applications as soon as possible after an invention is made if one wishes to maximize one’s chances that meaningful patent protection can be obtained. Failure to do so can result in loss of all patent rights, and possibly the granting of a US patent to a later inventor. Filing a provisional patent application on your invention today may preserve patent rights that could be lost tomorrow. Please let us know immediately if you would like for us to file a provisional patent application on your invention today.

In general, most invention marketing companies of which we are aware do not provide services of value to inventors. We are aware of some that we believe reputable. Please contact us before consulting with an invention marketing company. For more information about invention marketing companies, please visit the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office web page regarding them:
