Patent FAQs

What is a Patent Agent?

Since 2005, Bassett IP Strategies has been helping businesses get patents on their inventions.  We’ll help you business solve intellectual property issues.  We specialize in meeting the intellectual property needs of small businesses.


We have on staff a patent agent registered to practice before the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).  When it comes to developing, submitting, and prosecuting your patent application, the USPTO makes no distinction between a patent attorney and a patent agent.  When working on your behalf in matters dealing directly between you and the USPTO, a patent agent may perform all of the same duties that a patent attorney would perform, typically at a fraction of the cost. Where a patent agent differs from a patent attorney, is when there is a 3rd party involved.  A patent agent will not draw up a contract for you and a 3rd party, but one can file assignment agreements with the USPTO for you.  A patent agent will not handle an interference between you and a separate party.  A patent agent will not help you get a trademark nor a copyright. 


Let us assist you in improving the management of your company’s intellectual property assets.
