Like many inventors I had an idea for a product, I built a number of prototypes and tested them out until I felt ready to promote it and raise investment. But I had a problem I didn't have any protection and feared what would happen if I went ahead without it. I couldn't afford to hire a lawyer so I put the project aside.
Four years went by until I was fortunate to get a grant to help me get it filed and drafted in a law firm in the US. I was later hired at the law firm and was trained to draft and file patents. Since then I have worked for a number institutions advising students, researchers and small companies on IP and commercialisation matters. Not to mention creating business from my our IP.
I am committed to helping inventors protect their product ideas and helping them turn them into business without the huge lawyer fees!
