I have helped inventors of tools and other equipment apply for and be granted many patents. You can search some of those granted patents here. A few examples of tools and other equipment I helped to patent include:
- An impact-punch tool that cuts holes, cuts wire, and connects wires to terminals with a more-even amount of force each time it is used
- A tool for more easily removing the pulleys that connect the shafts in the drivetrain of an automobile
- A tie-down strap (similar to a ratchet strap) for securing loads on vehicles more easily and with less risk of slippage
For this field in particular, you want your patent attorney to have an engineering background and experience in patenting tools and equipment for consumers and professionals alike. It’s crucial that your patent attorney understand the inner workings of your invention, from handle to head, before you sink any more money into further development, hiring, production, and marketing. The earlier we zero in on exactly what is unique about your tool, the sooner you can protect those unique elements and profit from them.
Do you have an idea for a tool of any kind – one that you’d like to patent? If so, would you like to pursue a patent for it, or do you have an existing patent that you need like to defend or prosecute? Contact me, James Yang, for a consultation. As an Orange County-based patent attorney since 2004 and an engineer before then, I can help. I work with inventors throughout Orange County, Los Angeles County, and throughout California and the US, and am confident I can help you to patent your tool or equipment. You can schedule a free initial consultation now.
James Yang is not the first patent attorney I have worked with over the years, but he will most certainly be the last. James is hard to describe but a mix of a brilliant legal mind, engineering nerd, fantastic strategist, and calming communicator with a way of planning and explaining the best path Would be a start. My patent for reducing friction, torque, and drag in oil producing well pumps was very complicated but he understood it immediately and steered us strategically through difficult roads. James not only simplified my years of R&D, Field Trials, and scattered writings into an easy to comprehend application, but planned, strategized and navigated us through and around a highly complicated and protective Oil & Gas industry loaded with patents in the oil production space. James has an incredible talent for seeing and planing for the bigger picture. With us, he didn’t just translate, help author and file… he spent more time planning for all the future chess moves in advance. This combined with his communication skills, and way of explaining filings, responses, and overall strategy makes him the best partner / lawyer / friend one could ever hope to find in a confusing process. – Scott Rettberg (see review in Google Maps)
