Clients rely on Paul & Paul to ensure that prosecution of their patents and trademarks progresses efficiently throughout the examination process. If a patent examiner raises objections to the patent application, a Paul & Paul prosecutor formulates a strategic action for the client; whether to amend the claim to the satisfaction of the examiner, attempt to convince the examiner, or initiate the appeals process. In any of these situations, Paul & Paul clients know that their ideas receive the attention and protection they deserve.

"Paul & Paul helped me patent an idea I'd had for years!"

"I initially tried the patent process alone and ran into so many roadblocks along the way. Finally, I was referred here through a friend who had used the firm's services before. Paul & Paul helped me patent an idea I'd had for years! It was so great to work with a team who felt like they genuinely cared about my product, and wanted me to succeed. Months later I have now been able to turn my dreams into a reality! Thank you everyone at Paul & Paul!!!"
