A Different Way

Many patentees pay $7,000 and more for patent application to be prepared and filed.

​Patent firms often charge $400 and more per hour. At RB&A, non-provisional patents cost $4,000. Period. That includes drawings, claims, disclosures, filing documentation preparation and electronic filing. Provisional applications cost $3,000.

When a filed non-provisional patent is examined, 96 percent of the time, all claims are rejected. During prosecution (e.g. responding to those rejections), a patent practitioner has to think and act strategically. With over 12 years of patenting, and more than 200 patents filed, RB&A has managed to achieve over 95 percent allowance/issue success. The industry average is less than 50 percent. This is where the rubber meets the road.

Based on preliminary searching, RB&A will not move forward on an application that is likely to be unsuccessful. When that happens, the total cost is $300. In many cases, a suggested change to an invention changes the odds of success, and we can move forward.

Many RB&A clients are individual inventors and startup companies. In addition to patent expertise, RB&A offers product definition and marketing insight as a value-added option.



Clients include individual inventors, startup companies, and established companies. What they all have in common are patent needs.

Areas of expertise include:

  • Electronics 

  • Wireless 

  • Semiconductor 

  • Automotive Safety Systems

  • System and Application Software

  • Electro-Mechanical
