Plant science – agriculture patents – finding a patent attorney or agent
If you've filed patents before, you may have had the unfortunate experience of hiring a patent attorney who claims they can file patents for plants but once you sit down and work with them, you discover that they have no previous experience. Perhaps your patent attorney didn't understand your plant invention and they even filed the wrong kind of patent! I know this can happen because we at GRIPS fixed such a problem that happened at a law firm.
Plant science if far more complicated than many intellectual property professionals realize. Even patent and trademark prosecution (the process of obtaining patent and trademark protection) requires knowledge of international plant breeder's rights protections – even for U.S. patents.
At GRIPS, we realize that each plant is unique, each invention is unique, and each client deserves to have their unique needs recognized and met. That is why we have teamed up with professionals with various areas of expertise.
Whether you need an excellent patent agent to file a utility patent application for a plant, an attorney who can advise about global trademark strategy, a scientist who has a background in the plant sciences and plant breeding, or someone to manage grower and vendor contracts, we can help you. Whether you want to manage your plant breeding portfolio emphasizing cost-effectiveness or you are a large agricultural company interested in expanding your seed production into global markets, we can help you streamline the process and get the kind of protection you need. Give Allison a call to set up an initial strategy session.
