Alternative Fee Arrangements for Patent Preparation & Prosecution


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.



  • 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)


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



  • 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 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.



  • 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
