At Ricco we have in-house patent specialists able to provide individuals and organisations patenting expertise and common sense advice when considering protection of their ideas.
We firstly recommend that clients carry out a patent search to check that their idea/creation has previously been patented as this could save a great deal of time and money. We have included links at the bottom of the page for free patent search engines. If your search does not show similar/same inventions we would suggest you then undertake a professional patent search.
At Ricco we have sophisticated Patent software that can aggregate and document existing worldwide patents of interest with similar or the same “prior art” that may potentially restrict a freedom to operate and/or suggest an unsuccessful Patent application. We are also able within the report- search all patents which cite or cross-reference an early patent / patent application and provide all the abstracts for each relevant patent of note.
Our patents team are qualified both in electronics design and patenting providing a specialist focus on technical patent search and patent analysis.
We have in-house experienced technical patent drafting and consultancy resources able to create, document and file your patent application.
Complimenting this resource we have a full electronics design capability able to provide additional technical content to strengthen your patent claims.
At Ricco we have experts at hand that can advise and help assess potential research and tax credits including Patent Box that may be available for your Electronics and software related projects if you are a small or medium size business.
