What will it cost to work with a Patent Attorney?

Whether you’re a big company or an individual inventor (or somewhere in between), most clients want to know how much it’s going to cost to hire a patent attorney.

Many attorneys charge an hourly rate. Some patent attorneys charge $500 per hour or more. On the low end, even an hourly rate of $200 per hour can add up fast. And the worst part is that you don’t know how much you’ve spent until the bill arrives.

But what if you could get a flat fee quote for a project, before you hire a patent attorney?

You can.

Trenner Law Firm does everything on a per project, Flat Fee basis.

Imagine knowing what it will cost to hire a patent attorney up front, before you ask your patent attorney to do any work.

Not an estimate, but a Flat Fee. When the bill arrives, the total amount charged is exactly what you were told it would cost before getting started.

That’s how Trenner Law Firm’s Flat Fees work.

For example, you may want to file a provisional patent application to get patent pending status for your invention. You call Trenner Law Firm and we tell you what it will cost. A Flat Fee. Not an estimate. There are no hidden charges. Then if you decide to work with Trenner Law Firm, we prepare a provisional patent application for you to review. We revise based on your feedback. If you have any questions, we answer those for you. When you approve the final draft, we file the provisional patent application at the US Patent Office and provide you with electronic copies of the filing paperwork the very same day.

Then when the invoice comes, the total bill for the project is exactly what we told you it would cost.
