Initial Consultation

As a patent practitioner, Mrs. Miller, is given power of attorney by an inventor or by an assignee to act in a legal capacity before the USPTO to represent a client’s important patent matter.  A registered patent practitioner is required at a federal level by the USPTO to maintain disclosures of their clients and this legal requirement is set forth in 37 C.F.R. § 11.106 and 37 C.F.R. § 11.118.  When you first meet with Mrs. Miller during your Confidential Initial Consultation, you can be assured that the disclosure of your invention is kept confidential under Attorney-Client Privilege.
