An inventor's worst nightmare is to have its invention copied and brought to the market by a competitor. Some businesses will not hesitate to try to slightly modify a patented or unpatented invention and attempt to sell it. If you want to discuss licensing your invention with a manufacturer, a nondisclosure agreement (NDA) can provide substantial protection. In short, an NDA acts like a confidentiality agreement and can bar a company from discussing your invention with others.
While an NDA can provide extensive protection for a patented invention, it will not have any value unless it is correctly constructed. In addition, if your invention is patent pending, an NDA is of critical importance. A lawyer who is knowledgeable about patent and contract law can play an essential role in helping you obtain maximum protection.
Based in the Dallas-Fort Worth area (with offices in Houston, Texas, and Denver, Colorado), attorney Richard G. Eldredge has the skill and experience necessary to help you protect your invention. As a patent lawyer who has successfully guided hundreds of clients through the patent application process, he has also helped many clients successfully bring their products to the market.
