Integral Patent Services®
CRR Integral Patent Services (IPS) provides an important bridge between the inventor or company and the patent attorney that enables them to produce a high quality patent in a productive, timely, and cost effective manner. With involvement in both the technical and business sides of an invention and a thorough understanding of the patenting process, CRR is able to optimize the time and effort of both the inventor and the patent attorney.
Basic and Premium IP Consulting Services are a very wise investment for any technology-based business. Certain IP costs are also valid expenses for government contracts having IP requirements, and the contractor gets to retain commercial rights.
IPS significantly lowers legal expenses as well as the cost of inventor/engineering support, resulting in a high quality patent for about one-half or less of the average cost. With CRR’s approach, clients become more comfortable with, and confident about, their patenting experience.
