We know HealthTech IP

Our attorneys come from top firms in the U.S.
We have planned IP for some of the most well-known companies in the world,
solving complex legal problems with extraordinary amounts at stake.

Throughout our partners’ impressive careers, we have developed proven
patent prosecution processes that have earned 1000+ allowances for clients,
the fastest being within 2.5 months for a robust patent allowance.

Because we utilize best practices for patent prosecution and stay current
with evolving USPTO guidelines, we plan, file and obtain patents
aligned with the most modern standards.

Cognition IP is competitive with the top firms in the US, with high allowance rates,
high success with appeals and high success with examiners.

Our prosecution strategy reduces the overall number of office actions
and RCEs needed to obtain a patent.

For our HealthTech clients, this means fewer delays and faster allowances with reduced overall costs.

Do you handle Freedom to Operate (FTO) searches?

Yes. Cognition IP can handle Freedom to Operate (FTO) searches for a variety of HealthTech, BioTech, Medical Device, Bioinformatics, Software as Medical Device (SaMD), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Machine Learning (ML) innovations, with or without legal opinion. FTO searches are common before patenting due to the high costs of HealthTech R&D.  

What is included in the HealthTech fixed fee pricing?

In our flat rate patent pricing, we include an initial consultation, disclosure meeting, drafting and filing of the patent application, patent prosecution management and an allowance for standard communications. We charge a fixed fee for office actions and additional services if necessary, a la carte. These will be quoted up front with 100% transparency when crafting your IP strategy. 

Do you file Provisional Patent Applications?

Yes. We file Provisional and Nonprovisional Patent Applications. The Provisional Patent application is a useful strategic tool to capture an early priority date if utilized properly. A working prototype is not needed for either Provisional or Nonprovisional applications.

What is the process for patents and trademarks?

We begin by gathering a few important details in a complimentary discovery call. During this call, we understand your timeline and business objectives, provide a general expectation of fees and see if Cognition IP is a good fit. Should you decide to engage, we typically have applications ready within a few weeks. Once filed, we will await the USPTO response and guide the prosecution.  The typical timeline of the USPTO for patents and trademarks can be 1-3 years, but expedited options may also be available.
