Can I Speed Up Design Patent Applications?

Yes, you can work with an NJ patent attorney to file a request for an expedited examination. You also need to submit design drawing requirements, a pre examination search statement, and a filing fee. However; keep in mind that this design application has an average wait time of 14 months.

Can I Reinstate an Expired Patent?
