What you get with this Offer

I am a European Patent Attorney with over 30 years experience in the consumer product and pharmaceutical industries; and now run my own company. The world of patents can appear complex and confusing. Sometimes you just need a down-to-earth explanation of a patent issue as it affects your business. Is my idea patentable? Will I infringe someone else's patent? How can patents help my business? Do I need to file internationally?

I can assess patentability or infringement or just discuss a patent issue that you need to deal with. My advice will be in simple terms, without jargon and be business focussed. This can be done by correspondence, phone, or if helpful, we can meet to discuss. The fee would cover one patentability or infringement assessment, or other issue analysis, but we would take as long as is necessary for our discussions. It would not include any patent drafting or external searches that may be required.

All correspondence and discussions with me as a European Patent Attorney are in confidence, but if you wish me to sign a confidentiality agreement, I would be happy to do so.

My background is in chemisty and I can also deal with general mechanical subject matter. However, I do not have expertise in electronic or software patenting.

What the Freelancer needs to start the work
