Not every inventor will qualify for pro bono service because of time constraints or other logistics. The Marketplace is designed for them. As soon as an inventor inquiry is entered into The Matching Program, it is also entered into The Marketplace: a list of attorneys who have registered to provide patent counsel services at reduced rates. Instead of waiting for the matching process to run its course, this enables attorneys to contact an inventor they can assist. Because the process of matching attorneys with inventors can be slow, The Marketplace helps ensure that we can find a match as quickly as possible.
Only PatentConnect–registered attorneys are eligible for The Marketplace. Please register here to make sure you are included.
