您準備好申請專利了嗎?

美國專利及商標局(United States Patent and Trademark Office,簡稱PTO或USPTO)是美國商務部下的一個機構,為發明家和他們發明的產品提供專利保護、商標註冊和知識產權證明。專利持有人在法律保護的一段時期內,擁有獨有的權利去製造,使用,以及銷售其發明的產品。雖然申請專利會是一項比較複雜的法律程序, 但是對於其發明者和其發明的產品提供相關的法律保護卻是很有必要的。美國專利商標局對於提出的申請案皆會自動對其進行實體審查,確定申請者滿足相關條件後,才會承認其專利。所以...

在委任關係結束後律師有什麼義務?

在律師與當事人委任關係結束後,律師需要明白自己信守對於前客戶的道德和職業準則的重要性。通常在業務交易或訴訟事宜接近尾聲時,委任關係的終結有時是可以預料並且很友善的。但有時委任關係的終止卻是意料之外且不歡而散的,比如說雙方意見不合,當事人要求撤回委任,或兩方關係破裂,導致當事人和律師之委任關係,不得不中止。 對前客戶所擁有的職責...

避免遺囑認證

遺囑認證是一道由遺囑檢驗法院監督執行,根據已故者意願進行財產分配的法律程序。 法院將確保已故者的所有的債務已償還,並且確保正確的受益人將繼承已故者的財產。 如果一個人在去世前沒有立遺囑,法院將根據其所在州的遺囑認證法律,讓其家庭成員們繼承已故者的資產。 遺囑必須通過遺囑驗證,但是也有其他的方式可以避免遺囑驗證這樣消耗時間的程序。 遺囑驗證的劣勢 遺囑驗證有諸多缺點。...

臨時專利的優點

2011年美國總統歐巴馬簽署並公布《美國發明法案》(Americans Invent Act,簡稱AIA法案),AIA法案在專利之申請程序及其他異議程序上,有巨大的變革,其中一個最重要的改變即是將美國專利權的授予從「發明優先制」改爲「申請優先制」。 在「申請優先制」此一新法上,專利權將授予給第一位向公眾揭露發明並向美國專利商標局(USPTO)遞交 專利申請之發明人,有鑑於上述專利法及其程序之變革,臨時專利申請(provisional patent )之重要性,自此大幅提升。 臨時專利申請的重要性...

除合夥關係

What Our Clients Say

Starting a new business can be a bit scary. Aside from worries of failure, there’s also the hassle of making sure all legal paperwork are properly filed. I reached out to Mr. Wang (Tommy) because of his excellent reviews and reputation and I am so glad I did. He was thorough and meticulous in answering all of my concerns and took time to find out special laws and policies regarding the kind of business I am starting. I could focus on the daily practical side of starting my new office without worry because I felt Tommy was reliable and took my case seriously. My business is opened and it’s all been a smooth start because of Tommy’s help. I have plans to start another business venture in the next few years and I already know I’ll be coming back to Wang IP Law.

I came to Tommy for help reviewing a licensing agreement I had secured with a well-known manufacturer. Tommy made sure I understood all the details in the contract and he negotiated with the company to improve my side of the deal. I mentioned to Tommy at my first consultation that we were looking to expand throughout the US and were investing a lot of money to make a big entrance into the market. I did not think I would have my store open so soon but Tommy also has connections with the local area and realtors to help me secure the location for my first store in the Los Angeles area. Tommy works a lot with the local businesses and he understands how to transition from the Asian market to US market. Within 8 months my store was open for business and fully operating. I must recommend Tommy to any business owners looking for help with contracts and improving their side of the deal. Tommy has the knowledge and experience to make sure there is a smooth process to open for business here, and make sure that your company is set up for success.

I have been working on my Utility Patent for almost 4 years. I have hired and fired two very reputable IP firms because with all their expertise and reputation for being some of the top firms in IP Law, I felt a lack of connection and care in my product, time and financial investment. Then I found Tommy and his team. Tommy does not waste time. He and his team are professional and extremely thorough. After 4 years, I finally found a legal team that I felt spent the time to really understand the components of my utility patent. Tommy also very mindful of cost and how and where my money would be better spent. I really feel I am in great hands with Tommy and his team. They have been patient with my revisions. And most importantly, they made me feel that they fully understood the importance this patent is to me. It has been a great and comforting pleasure working with Tommy.
