My experience with Albright IP has been flawless from start to finish. I... have never filed a patent before so I was learning everything as I went along. They have been helpful in every way possible and gone the extra mile to ensure I was kept in the loop and happy as everything was going through each step of the way. I cannot express enough how pleased I am with their service. I had the pleasure of working with Will, Abigail, and Adrian. I would recommend Albright IP to anyone looking to file a patent more

Was a pleasure to work with Will and Melissa on a patent draft and filing.... Will took the time to understand both my software product and the commercial motivations behind the patent filing. They were extremely responsive to questions and clarifications throughout the process (availability isn't everything, but it certainly helps!).They were also very clear regarding fees, and set out a very helpful visual timeline and cost breakdown on the whole patent application process at the pre-sales stage. This emphasis on making sure I understood all aspects of the work, and having documentation to help with that, is something I didn't see with any of the other patent services I was talking to at the time. This clear communication continued throughout our interactions.Would recommend Albright IP to anyone looking to patent an invention. The patent they filed for me was for a software more

This is the process whereby an applicant voluntarily and actively removes their patent application from the patenting procedure. Strategically, if withdrawal is completed before publication, an applicant can retain the opportunity to re-file a new and improved patent application without the earlier application becoming an official obstacle to grant.


Negotiations ‘without prejudice’ cannot later be used as evidence in Court.  Thus parties are able to negotiate freely, making compromises and offering concessions in an attempt to settle a dispute, without fear that their position will be compromised if negotiations fail and the matter becomes the subject of proceedings in Court.
