How to Prepare & File a U.S. Provisional Patent Application


Mark Kammer, a patent attorney at the Law Firm of Kammer Browning PLLC, is our speaker for August 2014 and will present How To Prepare & File a U.S. Provisional Patent Application.

With the advent of the First to File Provisions of the America Invents Act of 2011, it has become more important than ever to establish an early Filing Date for a Patent Application covering an Invention. While a Provisional Patent Application (PPA) can provide that all important Filing Date, an inadequate or incomplete disclosure can be fatal to later reliance on the priority filing date in a Regular Patent Application (RPA). The presentation will review what the essential elements of a good PPA are and how to assemble them to provide a sound basis for maintaining a claim to priority in a later filed RPA. The presentation will also discuss the practical aspects of filing the Application with the USPTO and what more to do with the PPA during its one year pendency. The pros and cons of including one or more claims in a PPA filing, as well as the possible need for professional assistance in drafting the PPA, will also be discussed.

Mark is one of two Licensed Patent Attorneys (with Linda Browning) in the local Intellectual Property Law Firm of Kammer Browning PLLC.

Mark holds a Physics Degree from St. Mary's University and his Law Degree from The University of Texas at Austin. Mark has practiced in the field of Intellectual Property Law since 1989.
