A Law Firm Founded By A Former U.S. Patent Examiner

As a former U.S. patent examiner, Ryan M. Schneer has the inside scoop on the intricate process and timelines for securing your right to control and monetize your original invention. His primary focus is assisting clients who are refining emerging technologies in the chemical, biomedical, pharmaceutical, textile, materials, nanotechnology, mechanical, electrical, and software fields, the doors of Schneer IP Law PLLC are open to all.

Protecting Your Ideas And Original Work Is Complex

Ryan M. Schneer takes time to understand your invention and comes back to you with the type of draft the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) requires for filing. The drafting and filing process is a collaborative one where you provide your key input and feedback.

When it comes to trademarks and copyrights, the USPTO does not guarantee protection of your creation. Working with the agency is a laborious process that involves extensive research. If your patent or copyright is subject to approval and receives protections, you will also need to be mindful of updating the registration on a regular basis or lose your right to do so.

Staying abreast of legislative amendments, agency revisions and case law updates, Mr. Schneer uses cutting-edge analytics and statistics to maximize your chances of getting your utility patent, design patent, or trademark granted.
