Invention services to suit your budget


We want to give inventors quality support at affordable prices. To do this we offer a choice of services, mostly at fixed prices for a fixed amount of our time.

We’ll need details of your idea, invention, design etc, so please read this – a simple, safe mutual confidentiality agreement that applies automatically to all our services. We’ll sign your own NDA too if you wish, if its terms are acceptable.

Currently available services include:


Invention Advice Email – Level 1: £35 
  A quick way to get a sense of whether your invention idea will fly – because statistically, most don’t. We spend an hour on your idea, then email you a brief opinion of its strengths and weaknesses. If you prefer frankness to detail, this is a bargain.

Invention Advice Email – Level 2: £65   Still at starter level, but you’ve perhaps got more confidence in your idea’s potential. We spend two hours on your idea, so you get more detailed feedback and the option of a phone conversation to discuss.


Patent search: £100 
We spend around three hours searching patent databases for prior art. This is ample for most invention ideas. If the nature of a potential product or technology requires it, we can carry out more intensive searches by arrangement.

Research
& Report: £200  Our most popular and comprehensive service. Includes a patent and product search, advice on commercial potential and IP strategy, suggested actions, and referrals to useful and reputable people or organisations with potential to move the project forward.

Project assistance: £200 per day (or equivalent hours)
  We’ll work on your behalf to solve problems, make contacts, find resources, help with business planning, funding bids, or marketing.

Patent application writing: around £300
  A fraction of typical patent attorney costs. You handle all officlal transactions with patent offices, but this is usually straightforward. Please note that this is an expert service from an independent affiliate, and is only available if you’ve used or are using other abettermousetrap.co.uk services.
