Protect Your Ideas with Confidence

Innovators and small businesses face a competitive landscape where securing intellectual property quickly is crucial. At Thrasher Associates, we specialize in helping inventors and small businesses file provisional patent applications, ensuring your ideas are protected from the start.

What is a Provisional Patent Application?

A provisional patent application is a type of patent filing that provides a temporary, 12-month period to safeguard your invention before filing a full non-provisional patent application. It allows you to establish an early filing date, which is crucial for protecting your priority in the patent process. Here’s why you need it:

  • Cost-Effective: Less expensive than a full patent application, providing time to refine and further develop your invention.
