Strategic Counsel To Protect Your Intellectual Property

For software developers, inventors and information technology company executives alike, finding the right intellectual property protections can be essential to your long-term success. It is important to work with an attorney who understands not only the law but also how it applies to new and innovative technology.

With a computer science background and long-standing interest in intellectual property law, I have made this area one of the cornerstones of my firm. At Saldana Lawyers, I work with technology companies of all sizes, as well as individual developers and inventors of simple devices, on all types of intellectual property issues.

I can assist with all types of transactions that can protect your intellectual property and help you avoid patent prosecution and other problems down the line, including:

  • Preparing and filing a patent application
  • Licensing a patent
  • Software patents
  • Trademark licensing
  • Copyright registration
  • Drafting noncompete and nondisclosure agreements

A Strategic Approach To Patent Issues

Is a patent search the right way to get started? It depends. At your free consultation, I can explain the benefits and potential drawbacks of a patent search and help you decide whether to proceed.

As your attorney, my goal is to protect you through the process. I will make sure I understand the nuances of the complex technology involved in your case to help you formulate the strategy that will best protect your interests.

Your Initial Consultation Is Confidential

Confidentiality is extremely important for intellectual property and inventor protection matters, and you can expect the highest degree of integrity from my firm in this respect. When you call Saldana Lawyers, you reach me, Trina Saldana, directly, and you will continue to work directly with me throughout the duration of your case.

The cost of obtaining a utility patent in the United States is difficult to estimate, because the extent of the work involved depends on the technology of the invention. Thus, the answer is typically a ball park figure. However, without discussing and knowing about how complex the invention is, it is very difficult to give a realistic ballpark figure.

This figure does not include the filing fees and issue fees that the United States Patent and Trademark Office ("USPTO") require from you. A fee guidance with respect to the patent filing fees can be found on the USPTO website.

To schedule an initial consultation, call 206-453-2056 or send me a message through my secure online form. My office is located in Burien, and I work with clients throughout King County and the surrounding areas of Washington. As a bilingual attorney, I provide the same level of services in both Spanish and English.
