Inventor Services, LLC
Our Fees and Billing Procedure
Many great inventions are relatively simple ideas, easily described and patented. These "simple" inventions are sometimes referred to as "gadget" type inventions for purposes of pricing our work. Gadget type inventions are generally less expensive to patent. (Price estimates quoted on this site generally represent more complex cases from our work history). However, we are happy to provide free, firm fixed cost, no obligation, estimates for projects of any complexity.
We typically allocate one hour to meet with the inventor, discuss the invention, and formulate the quote - all at no cost or obligation to the inventor. We are willing to work with you, to the extent possible, to minimize your costs. For example, if you desire to make your own patent drawings, we can tell you what is required for their format. Our charges are based entirely upon the time spent on your project - reduce the time required, and your costs will be less.
