You have an idea for an invention that will revolutionize the world. Nothing too fleshed out yet. You write it on a napkin to return to it later. Some time goes by. You can’t get that invention idea out of your head. You put some work into it. Perhaps you build a prototype. Maybe you have some drawings done up. Now what? Get a patent agent on the job!
My name is Neil Thompson, and I’m a patent agent. What does that mean? I draft and file patent applications for inventors with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). I also prosecute patent applications on behalf of inventors with the USPTO.
