Why isn’t your collaborative 1-day drafting service available from other firms?
The patent lawyer community, particularly evidenced in Raleigh, RTP, and perhaps all of North Carolina in general, is moving towards larger and larger clients. Bigger clients have many projects in their primary field of expertise and perhaps slightly outside of it. When large entities with massive financial and personnel resources want to pioneer a new technology space, they can throw themselves into it, and this creates a potential boondoggle for law firms. Nobody really knows what’s going to get a foothold in the USPTO patent examiners’ collective psyche as being an unanticipated realm ripe for innovation. If something sticks, then there is a massive opportunity for preparing huge amounts of billable work. It is simply too tempting to resist, and so law firms, seeking stability and a powerful niche of burgeoning technology, shape their firms to suit that sort of client. North Carolina is especially susceptible to this trend because it is a hotbed for inventions in fields that suit this pattern, namely biological and medical research, and information technology and data handling. In absolute terms, it may be second only to California in “tech,” but because of its smaller population, it has a smaller intellectual property community, and therefore almost certainly has a higher ratio of highly-billable high-tech clients per patent attorney.
Daniel Becker, Attorney at law, PLLC. is a different sort of firm. I pride myself on client involvement and prioritizing filing the best and fewest applications possible, to move clients with a modest range of embodiments of technologies toward patent protection. I do it because they deserve it, and they need it. I want to make the different between a merely capable inventor and a business that can blossom into its own market player and development center for advancing its technology.
1-day drafting allows for an inventor that is turning the corner on narrowing its invention toward reduction to practice to rapidly see-off delayed entry to the patent process by getting them into a room where they can funnel their innovation into me, so that I can encapsulate it densely as concentrated opening shot into patent prosecution. This way lets the inventor continue to be “master of his invention,” but delegate that cognitively dissonant burden without taking away from his need to focus on the product itself.
