How does one go about obtaining a patent at UL Lafayette?

The Office of Innovation Management has experience prosecuting thousands of patent applications in dozens of “art groups.” Therefore, the Office of Innovation Management secures the services of a responsive, patent attorney with content expertise. The patent attorney, in concert with the inventors, files a written patent application at the USPTO and continues to correspond with USPTO until issuance of a patent. The Office of Innovation Management operates to ensure effective protections and to minimize the costs that will, ultimately, reduce revenues.
