Patents and Licensing LLC: Daniel W Juffernbruch, Patent Attorney, a local Patent Law firm with years of experience helping clients in the Northern Trust Co, Illinois area.
Many inventors want to compete globally, but an international patent does not protect an invention in all the world's nations. However, an international patent application filed under the Patent Cooperation Treaty establishes a single filing date. This gives inventors more time to choose the nations in which to pursue individual patent protections and other benefits.
Hiring a Northern Trust Co international patent lawyer can ensure your patent application is properly done and meets all the necessary requirements required by international patent law. The lawyer can explain patent requirements, the patent process, and meet all the deadlines along the way.
Specialized legal help is available for most legal issues.

More importantly, there are certain situations and circumstances - such as being charged with a crime - where you should always seek experienced legal help.
