The buyout cost for a patent is set up front and will not change.
The buyout is NOT a percentage of patent value, revenue, or any other measure. We do not take warrants, “success fees,” or any type of carry.
Our job is to build Investment Grade Patents for you, not become a tax on your success.
Typically, the total price for a patent will be defined at the beginning of an engagement. This is a fixed fee that does not change, and is structured as a loan on a line of credit. When the patent issues, the loan becomes due and we will finance the amount over time, typically 3 years.
If you need to buyout the patent after it is filed but before the examination begins, the buyout price is 1/3 of the total price. If you choose to buyout the patent after examination begins but before allowance, the buyout price is 2/3 of the total price.
