Alternative Fee Arrangements for Patent Preparation & Prosecution

UMBRELLA

The Umbrella service is essentially a package deal that provides budget certainty while also promoting a special partnership relationship between PPB and our clients in a shared commitment to work together toward highly compact prosecution of a patent or portfolio of patents.

For a single fee, Umbrella bundles all of the core tasks associated with patent preparation and prosecution during an application's lifecycle and incentivizes reduced negotiation time with the USPTO.

USEFUL FOR CLIENTS WHO:    

      

  • Want a higher degree of budget certainty

  • Want to partner with PPB to obtain high quality patents quickly by reducing negotiation iterations with the USTPO

  • Have limited in-house patent service resources (e.g. start-ups)

LITE

By stripping away administrative service components, such as docketing and mail service, the Lite service gives clients only the legal services that they need.

USEFUL FOR CLIENTS WHO:   

   

  • Have extensive in-house patent service resources (e.g. large corporations)

  • Don't want to pay extra for associated bundled services typically included in full servcie offerings (e.g. docketing, mail handling, banking)

  • Non US-based companies and law firms

FIXED

Fixed is a flexible full service covering the entire spectrum of legal tasks involved with obtaining and enforcing patents.

Fixed is based on a fee schedule which is tailored to a corporation's individualized metrics, workflows and technologies.

USEFUL FOR CLIENTS WHO:   

   

  • Are comfortable with conventional fee arrangements

  • Want both some budget certainty and some flexibility in task control

  • Are any size from start-up to Fortune 100
