Patent Attorney and Engineer - Our Office Services
This page describes standard services as well as new innovative services such as stronger than patent protection, the patents game and a free database of Israeli patents.
Various types of search are performed at our office. You will find information that can help you to search for yourself, and tips to help you get more from searches at
the patent attorney office.
For details see Patents searches
Patent searches only check one requirement for patentability, NOVELTY; you can also check out other conditions, such as adequate technical description, inventive
step and more.
For details see Patentability study
Freedom to Act Study
Even if you receive a registered patent, this is no indication that you are allowed to produce and sell the invention described in your patent.
If you plan business activities, we can search for others' patents which may be relevant, and study these patents. This is the Freedom to Act Study.
We will accompany you through all the steps to successfully register a patent worldwide, if possible.
First you have to develop a strategy: To define the invention, how it compares to prior art, in which countries you desire to achieve protection, etc.
Second, we file patent applications as required, and pursue the application toward grant.
We strive to file quality patent applications, which advantageously describe your invention.
For details, see Patents Registration
How to Successfully Pass the Exam
During exam, both the legal/ patents and the technical side/ engineering aspects of your invention are reviewed.
Here, our vast experience in both patenting and technical R&D in the industry can prove useful.

Registering Intellectual Property - Not Patents
Our office handles the registration of all types of intellectual property, in addition to patents: designs, trademarks, service marks, etc.
What kind of protection is right for you? It depends on the nature of your invention. There are inventions that can't be protected with any of the intellectual property
tools; other inventions have different aspects, which allow simultaneous protection with a number of different tools of intellectual property.
We can recommend the intellectual tools appropriate to your invention, and a comprehensive defense strategy; all integrated within your business plan.
Intellectual Property Registration
Advanced Tools 1: Stroger Than Patent Protection
After thorough research, we have developed a new method of combining together different kinds of intellectual property protection; you get a stronger protection than
that of patent alone.
Any type of intellectual property has its specific laws, therefore effective protection requires a different strategy.
For example, patent protection requires to keep the invention secret until the filing of a patent application.
With trademark, however, it is best to start using the mark, and to file an application to register it - later. There are exceptions.
We have investigated the interdependence between the different types of protection. We devised the new method, Multi-IP.
For details see What is Multi-IP
Advanced Tools 2: A Systematic, Scientific Approach to Patenting
At present there are no tools to help the patent attorney in understanding complex inventions and for comparing with prior art. It is tedious, error-prone manual labor.
We developed a novel method, using high tech tools such as Boolean algebra, matrices, etc., adapted to support patenting work per Patent Laws, to
assist the patent attorney. The method also helps in communications with the patent examiner.
The Nazareth District Court permitted Marc Zuta to present his recommendations as expert consultant to the Court, using the novel method, Patentics.

Advanced tools 4: The Patents Game
We found that there are complex theoretical issues related to patenting that are difficult to explain to novices; even after lengthy (and expensive) explanations,
inventors and managers may still not fully comprehend the issues involved; and even if they do understand, they may not remember them and assimilate them in their
daily thinking and decision-making activities.
The best way of learning is by doing, not by rote!
Thus we developed a novel educational game is aimed at giving you experience and understanding on patentability issues; this in a relatively short time and at low
cost- you lose only play money.
The game is based on a patent attorney's experience since 1995, and relating to many failures and successes, of a multitude of companies and inventors.
This fascinating game combines entertainment and sound guidelines, to teach you some fundamental issues in patenting.
The board game is built in the form of an Olympic running track- you learn that patenting is a race and that effort, planning and ingenuity are required. It is devised for
two to six players. Not prior knowledge or experience in patenting is required. Actually, past experience may be detrimental, since inventors sometimes don't draw
the correct conclusions from what has happened to them.
