Thank You for Scheduling a Patentability Consult!

Thank you very much for letting us be part of your intellectual property journey. We are looking forward to working with you as we prepare for your patentability consult. Our inventors tell us that it helps to keep a separate list of questions for your patent practitioner so you can be sure you get answers for all of your questions.

Sending Information About Your Invention

If you have not done so already, before your patentability consult, we need information about your invention in order to proceed with the prior art search. We generally say that you cannot over disclose details of your invention. The most important thing that needs to happen is that we understand the invention in terms of how to make and use it. Please feel free to use our patent intake form, or send any documents, images, videos, or other files. 

Questions – Please Send Us an Email

We look forward to providing you with the best service we can. In the meantime, before your patentability consult, if you have any questions or want a clarification, please contact us. With notice, we are available at all hours for clients. Thank you for choosing Carson Patents.

What To Expect Next

If you are the inventor or applicant client paying for your own patentability consult services, we will be in touch soon to confirm your payment. As soon as we receive notice from our payment processor that your payment has been received, we will send you an email to confirm the payment. The subject line of the email will have our docket number that has been assigned to the matter and the amount you paid will be in the body of the message.

Our notice of payment received email to you will further include the next step(s) that we will be taking in moving your matter forward to completion. If we have questions or require verification of something, that will also be explained in the email notice regarding the payment.

There is no particular reason you would need to email us and let us know that you have made the payment, but it is easier and faster for us to verify and validate who is paying for which services if you email us to tell us you made the payment. The same is true if you are paying for our services for the benefit of another person or party.

If you are paying for someone else’s services, please keep reading … email us and let us know who you are paying for and how much. We can inform or not inform the inventor, applicant, or client of your identity as you choose. However, we will inform the inventor of the amount paid on their behalf.

Third Party Payor Notice

If you are paying for our patentability consult services and those services are to be provided to another person (inventor/applicant – party), you may or may not receive a notice that we received your payment. We appreciate your business. However, we want to point out (or remind) that we can, and do, only accept input and decisions regarding an invention from the inventor unless, or until, there is an assignment of interest or rights in any of our intellectual property applications from the owning inventor or applicant.

Remember There Are No Guarantees in Patenting

Patenting Note: We always strive to provide the best services that we can. Of course, there are not any guarantees in patenting. As we proceed forward with your case, our experts will be in contact and keep you posted on the status of your matter. We usually email questions as they arise. Please let us know if you prefer to receive questions in a format other than email. We have calling, texting, and emailing links on our Contact Us page. Thank you.
