If you have a USPTO Office Action rejecting your claims under 35 USC §101, §102, §103 or §112 or objecting for another reason, silverlegal can prepare and submit a response for you. Or, if your technology is so complex that your current law firm won't spend the time to learn it in order to effectively progress your application, give silverlegal a call.
silverlegal also provides innovative service models based on clients needs. For example, if an application is the cornerstone of a business strategy and is worth spending extra money on, silverlegal may pull together multiple experts to provide input. In other situations, you may want silverlegal to provide oversight of your existing patent attorney. For us, it is always about building the right solution for the client, and always at a predictable budget.
