What is a Patent?

A patent is a right granted to an inventor by the federal government for the inventor to be the only one to make his/her invention, to use it, to offer it for sale, to sell it, or to import it into the United States for a period of twenty (20) years for utility patents.

“Whoever invents or discovers any new and useful process, machine, manufacture, or composition of matter, or any new and useful improvement thereof, may obtain a patent therefor….” 35 U.S. Code 101

What is a Provisional Patent?

A provisional application is a temporary patent filed in the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), that establishes an early filing date, gets you to patent spending, has less formal filing requirements, but does not mature into an issued patent unless the applicant files a regular non-provisional patent application within one year.

Why do I need a Patent?

The only two ways to protect your invention are by a patent or by keeping it secret. Unfortunately, keeping your invention secret is very difficult, because once you sell your device or practice your method, others can “reverse engineer” and figure out how to make your device or use your method.

What is a Patent Search?

A patent can only be awarded if your invention has not been done before and is not so closely similar to previous inventions that your invention would be obvious. A patent search is a review of previous patents and publications to see what has previously been done.

What is a Design Patent?

A design patent is a patent that protects  the visual characteristics embodied in or applied to an article. Since a design is manifested in appearance, the subject matter of a design patent application may relate to the configuration or shape of an article, to the surface ornamentation applied to an article, or to the combination of configuration and surface ornamentation.

Grell & Watson Patent Attorneys LLC (“GW Patent Attorneys”) is excited to announce that patent attorney Jeff Watson has become a founding member and partner of GW Patent Attorneys.  Jeff runs the office in Charlotte, NC and will be available for meetings across the Carolinas.  A native Charlottean, Jeff graduated from the University of Miami School Of Law.  Prior to law school, Jeff earned an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from North Carolina State University.  Following law school, Jeff was an associate patent attorney for a local boutique IP firm for over 7.5 years before joining GW Patent Attorneys.  Mr. Watson is a skillful patent attorney in a wide range of practice areas with a strong background in mechanical arts including automotive, engines, shocks and suspensions, software and electronics, textile and material science patents, as well as process and business methods patents. Jeff’s primary focus is on the preparation and prosecution of patent applications, but also has extensive experience in patent litigation.  He is also an accomplished trademark attorney with a thorough background in trademark prosecution, domestic and foreign filings, matters before the TTAB, and trademark litigation.  Jeff is a member of the North Carolina State Bar and is registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the Western District of North Carolina, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.  Jeff is a member of the North Carolina Bar Association, the Mecklenburg County Bar Association, and is currently serving on the board for the Carolina Patent, Trademark and Copyright Law Association.  Jeff is an active member in the Charlotte community and looks forward to assisting clients with any IP issues and procurement, not just throughout the Charlotte metro area, but all over the Carolinas.

Jeff Watson is eager to publicize that he has partnered with Mat Grell to form Grell & Watson Patent Attorneys LLC (“GW Patent Attorneys”). GW Patent Attorneys is a boutique IP firm based in Atlanta, GA and has partnered with Jeff to open a satellite office in Charlotte, NC to serve, not only clients in the Charlotte metro area, but clients throughout the Carolinas.  Mr. Watson is delighted to partner with Mr. Grell and form GW Patent Attorneys as he believes it is a unique firm with a great team of attorneys that will truly benefit his clients and the local community.

“I am truly excited to announce my partnership with Mat to form the Grell & Watson Patent Attorneys firm.  GW Patent Attorneys is way ahead of the times and is setting a new standard for patent preparation and prosecution law firms. GW Patent Attorneys will allow me to serve clients in Charlotte and throughout the Carolinas at much lower costs by significantly decreasing the wasteful overhead of traditional brick and mortar law firms.  At the same time, GW Patent Attorneys has a first class operating system that will easily preserve the docketing and systems resources required by IP related matters, including a comprehensive docketing system for all patents, trademarks, and copyrights.  By decreasing the overhead costs and at least maintaining the same level of service expected of me from my clients, GW Patent Attorneys will allow me to provide clients a greater level of IP protection and service at a lower rate.  Not only am I excited about the opportunity for improved client service, I am also excited about working on such a close nit team with Mat and the rest of the staff of GW Patent Attorneys, who have great minds and are pioneers for all IP attorneys.”  –Jeff Watson
