Thompson Patent Law – About Us

If your business needs patent protection for a particular process or invention, Austin patent attorney Craige Thompson at Thompson Patent Law can explain the details about patents and patent protection. He will help you complete and file the extensive paperwork necessary to obtain a patent.

A patent gives its owner the legal right to exclude others from making, using, or selling an invention for a limited period of time. Manufactured articles, chemical compositions, and industrial processes may be patented. Patent applications in the U.S. are approved (or rejected) by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

To obtain patent protection, technical information about the process or invention must be disclosed in the application. Because of this requirement, you may choose to keep some of your trade secrets unpatented. Coca-Cola, for example, has successfully kept secret the ingredients of their product, because if they patented the formula, everyone would learn Coca-Cola’s recipe.

A Texas patent lawyer at Thompson Patent Law can offer you other options for protecting intellectual properties you may choose not to patent. Requiring employees to sign confidentiality agreements is one such option.
