Patent Applications in the United States
The United States allows a one year grace period from the first public disclosure of an invention until filing. This is based upon the first public disclosure of any kind in the United States, but only on a written public disclosure occurring outside of the United States. To take advantage of the Paris Convention, you must file an application at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) within one year from the priority date. The specification can be submitted in a language other than English, but the United States Patent and Trademark Office will charge a surcharge and an English translation must be submitted thereafter.
If you choose to apply in United States via the PCT route, you must file an application at the USPTO within 30 months of the priority date.
Our typical flat fee (including all disbursements) for filing a U.S. Patent Application based on foreign priority is US$762. The U.S. Government fee is $533 for an application with up 20 claims and up to 3 independent claims if the assignee has less than 500 employees. Our full fee schedule is available upon request.
