Many high-priced patent attorneys or patent law firms offer fixed prices for simple patent applications, but will not have a published fee schedule for more complex inventions, or only offer high hourly rates for patent prosecution. At IDP Patent Services we aim to ensure that all services are provided under a fixed or capped fee schedule.
