Costs

To give prospective clients an estimate of the total costs to patent protect their inventions in the U.S., shown in the table below are the various expected steps in a typical utility patent prosecution matter and their cost ranges for two different types of inventions: (a) a medical device, and (b) an e-Commerce-related, business method (BM). These total costs are significantly more than only the patent application drafting costs (line item #3 below), that are quoted by many online service providers, and which can mislead one into beginning a patent process that he/she may not be able to afford to complete without great financial sacrifices.
