Choosing the Best Patent Lawyer: Edmonton, AB

miles_ehrlich_judge

Choosing a patent lawyer is a very important decision for your business (or for yourself if it is for you personally).  Patenting can be a very difficult process because of how complex the law is.  Because of this, a talented and experienced patent lawyer is usually necessary to help you through the process.  Choosing to forgo one will end up costing you more money than had you used one more often than not.  Failing to use one can incur all sorts of extra costs, and can significantly prolong the process.  Worse yet, it could result in hundreds of hours of work on your part only to fail to get the patent.

Patent and trademark lawyers and attorneys specialize in this type of law in Canada.  They can perform a number of very important jobs to help you best navigate the process.  They can advise you as to whether your idea is even patent able or not, and if so how many details/modifications must be added so that they believe the patent will be approved.  They can advise you on all of the intricacies of the law and help you better understand the process, the implications, and the costs that will be involved in acquiring a patent.

When choosing the best patent lawyer in Edmonton Alberta, you have a variety of options.  Review all options carefully before making your decision.  Make sure that your final choice has plenty of experience in the field of patent/trademark law (within Canada as well).  They should have excellent reviews online, and have pricing in line with other lawyers in the Edmonton area.  However, above all they should pass your “gut” test.  The gut feeling is surprisingly accurate when it comes to lawyers, because above all you want a lawyer you trust that truly has your best interests at heart.…

How to Choose the Best Patent Attorney

If you are looking for a patent lawyer, there are many things you need to consider in order to make a well informed decision.  Here is a basic list of some considerations to test:

  • What field does this attorney or this firm specialize in?  Obviously a firm with specialization in patent or intellectual property law is ideal.  However, it is not a requirement.  Many firms are large enough to have different divisions, and employ lawyers for all sorts of purposes including personal injury, other civil lawsuits, criminal defense, and other fields.  The important thing is that the lawyer assigned to your case specializes in that field of law.  Lawyers may claim to be a “Swiss army knife”.  IP law is incredibly complex, it’s impossible for a lawyer to excel and be very knowledgeable in multiple fields like this.
  • How much experience does he have in that field?  This is where small and specialized firms usually do well.  Larger firms have a tendency to hand you off to a junior attorney that may make mistakes, or not be as efficient as they should be.  Smaller specialized firms are usually more aware and personalized in how they handle your case.  With copyright law, this can make all the difference.
  • How much care do they put into your individual case?  Our little trick for gauging this is pretty simple.  Most lawyers allow you to a book a one hour consultation for free.  Do this, and let them do most of the talking.  If they spend the hour telling you all about patent law, then they probably aren’t your best bet.  If they ask questions and explain how the law pertains to your specific case, then they look like a winner.

Aside from all of this, stick to your gut feeling.  It’s often very accurate, and helps to gauge the human element we can’t easily quantify.…
