Please note, if your innovation relates to High Technology (e.g., Software, Business Methods, Internet, Electronics, Computer Hardware, etc.)- then please Call us or get a written quote to determine if the below offer applies to your situation because those Technical areas are most often handled by our founding partner, Ariel Bentolila, given his substantial Technical and Legal expertise in those arts.

At the Law Offices of Bay Area IP llc, we have dedicated our practice exclusively to securing and preserving the intellectual property rights of our clients including patent, trademark, and copyright.

As experts in patents, our legal practitioners have been very successful in winning valuable patents for our clients. Clients of the firm always deal directly with our founder, Ariel Bentolila, on all of their legal matters, and are assured personal attention, open and direct communication, and the highest quality legal services, which we have consistently rendered to well over 1000 clients served over our 10 years of legal practice.  We look forward to adding you to our ever growing ranks of satisfied clients.

Legal Confidentiality Statement: As Registered Patent Attorneys, our firm is licensed to practice before the United States Patent & Trademark Office and is legally bound by Title 37 of the Code of Federal Regulations (Section 10.57) to maintain the strictest confidentiality with respect to invention submissions.

2- A US Patent Filing for only $3500- ALL costs included*.  Including the above patent search if you desire.  If you opt for the search, then we will also include a Patentability Legal Opinion (Item SP09, Reg. $250), and a Legal/Invention Consultation (Reg. $200) to assess and advise you if it is feasible to proceed to patent.  So, that all adds up to our $1200 search package being included for free.

This reduced pricing applies to small entities only with non-Hi-Tech inventions.  If you are a Larger Corporate client our Normal Fee Schedule applies, so please CLICK HERE to order a patent search from our normal order page or for patent work Request a Quote

        As you may know, if the Patent Office finds a patent (aka "prior art") covering your idea/innovation it will be rejected, and you will lose the many $1000s you paid on trying to patent and launch it into the marketplace.  So, you actually want to find problem patents now, before you invest much time & money.  This is why we believe that you should not trust any patent firm that does not strongly urge you to first do a Full Patent SearchAlso, beware of firms offering very low cost searches for "related art", which is usually just a "feel good" search that almost always turns out "positive for patenting".  This is NOT a "knock out" search.

$199 Search Offer: for Flat-Fee Patent/Search Details  OR to 

NOTICE: This offer may end or be modified at any time, without notice.
