TECH TRANSFER CONSULTANCY

Laura Schoppe, an expert in technology transfer, says, “It costs upwards of $20,000 to get a United States patent (mostly lawyer fees to write a strong patent) and over $100,000 for international coverage. Getting a patent just so you can say you have one is not likely to be cost effective. Additionally, a business should look at what they intend to do with the patent, its potential impact.”
