Our Services:  How Can We Help You?

Did you know that you can file your own applications for U.S. patents, trademarks, and plant breeder's rights applications?  If you and your organization have done so in the past, you also probably know that while you can file yourself, the governmental offices do not make it easy and it can be a huge burden to manage the paperwork, let alone know exactly what to do.

That is where we come in.

We have the experience and organizational skills to help you file the applications yourself, learn and understand the process, and manage the paperwork with confidence.  Our plant protection intellectual property portfolio management services keep you in control without burying you in paperwork.  Allison has expertly managed Fortune 500 intellectual property portfolios for years and she's helped organizations both big and small stay organized, obtain protection, and manage their costs.

If you know specifically what services you need, please review our services below.

Filing for Plant Breeders Rights (or Plant Variety Protection) outside of the U.S.?

Managing costs for world wide PBRs or even filing in a country outside your main place of business can become convoluted and expensive quickly but with our commitment to guide you to great business decisions, we can help you manage this process.  Allison has a network of excellent international plant breeders rights agents and patent attorneys who can not only help with the filing and prosecution of your applications but coordinate field trials. Allison will act as a liaison and apply her plant breeders rights experience for the applications.

Filing a Plant Patent?

Some patent attorneys mistakenly think that plant patent applications are pretty straight forward but this over generalization can cost you more money than it should and delay the receipt of a grant. Allison has the experience to anticipate the questions plant patent examiners ask so that your application process is as efficient as possible. She also works with highly experienced (that doesn't mean expensive) patent attorneys.

Filing a (conventional) "Utility" Patent for Plants in the U.S., Japan, or Australia?

In patent lingo, a conventional patent, called a "utility patent" is available for some plants in a small handful of countries. There are several considerations to keep in mind if you are thinking of this type of protection so please call us if you think you might be interested in a utility application for plants, please let us know.

Registering you plant or seed for sale in a country?

The registration of seed relates to the commercial sale of seed in a country.

The seed registration process differs from the plant variety protection process and the requirements are managed by different government organizations. Just because you have a granted plant variety right does not mean that you have the right to sell your plant in the respective country.
