Key virtues of our company


We understand the need to develop an MVP that can be tested against a small target market of early adopters. If your product changes over the course of two weeks, we will respond to those changes.


Everyone that works at ClearCut IP has an entrepreneurial spirit. That means we participate in hackathons and conventions to stay on top of the latest innovations in the industry.


A strong portfolio doesn't just cover what is valuable today. We look at what will be valuable in two years time. If an application doesn't provide value, then we won't file it.


The USPTO updates the status of applications on a daily basis, but those statuses are only available to registered agents and attorneys. We provide a portal so you can keep up-to-date on all of your applications.

We know innovation.

True innovation can only be patented if it meets five legal requirements. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has boiled down hundreds of court cases into five terms of art. These words have precise, specialized meaning that connect these five terms to specific cases and rulings. They are (1) usefulness, (2) novelty, (3) non-obviousness, (4) definiteness, and (5) enablement.

A patent consists of two parts: the specification and the claims. The spefication is the part of the application that explains how to make and use the invention to one skilled in the art (i.e. enablement). The claims define the scope of protection provided by the patent. Generally, you want a detailed specification that explains multiple embodiments of the invention. For the claims, you want short, clear language that broadly defines the scope of the invention, but still meets the requirements of usefulness, novelty, non-obviousness and definiteness.
