Professional Patent Search

You spent significant time and resources creating your intellectual property (“IP”), and now you want to protect your investment. Clients often come to us because they are frustrated with the cost and complexity of the patenting process.

At Founders Legal®, our Patent Search Team provides valuable insight into the technology landscape. In addition to the regulatory knowledge and process familiarity needed to effectively handle the legalities of obtaining patent protection, our IP and patent team also draws on knowledge and experience gleaned from working in a variety of backgrounds and settings, including the sciences, engineering, entrepreneurship, and more.

Our experienced professionals have obtained patents for companies of all sizes, from start-ups to multi-national corporations, in multiple countries. Regardless of the size of your portfolio, we are fully committed to helping you successfully protect and strategize your IP.

Gain Specialized Insight Into Your Innovation

Utilizing our specialized patent search team, our patent search services have been developed and optimized to provide inventors and organizations with key insights into an invention as well as custom-tailored intellectual property strategies. Through our structured approach, process, and deliverables we provide you with the components and features you need for making critical intellectual property and cost decisions to confidently take your concept from idea to market.

At the very core, each tier of our made-to-measure services for patent searches includes a comprehensive US patent database search, an international patent search, and a summary of our findings.

The Intake Process is the first step, where we seek to understand your invention and your goals for it so we can absorb, distill, and align our search strategy with your vision. Next, we search worldwide patent databases to identify potentially relevant patent applications, patents, and non-patent literature. Finally, we will review the findings, report on them, and seek to differentiate your IP so you can make strategic business decisions with confidence.

What our Clients Say

Bob Scales

My experience with Zach was phenomenal. I brought him an infringement issue. He outlined the various plays from end to end and thoroughly explained the pros and cons. We mapped out a strategy and he executed. His approach was professional and aggressive. He prevailed and followed up to ensure compliance. What a great experience for a problem I thought was going to turn into a prolonged ordeal. Very competent and focused guy. Absolutely no reservations in recommending Zach to anyone.

I have been working with Founders legal since 2017. Yuri has always provided me with guidance on all technical endeavors and general questions. He has gone above and beyond at times to answer “one off” questions for me in particular scenarios. He is one of the few counsels who are relational rather than purely transactional. That is a breath of fresh air. Highly recommend them.

As innovators in the Daily Fantasy Sports industry, Yuri & Founders Legal were great partners as we envisioned what the future would look like. While pioneering our niche at PrizePicks, we believed it would eventually become a competitive category while submitting our International Utility Patent in 2019, and by 2023, we were absolutely correct. With the space becoming more & more competitive by the year, our utility & design patents will grow in significance. We are eternally appreciative of the time the Founders Legal team spent with us to get it right as well as the time & conviction they had to see it through!
