FAQ

Do you offer flat fee services?

Yes. Our services are primarily offered on a flat-fee basis. If you have particular fee requirements or need hourly billing, please let us know at your initial meeting.

Where can I send an RFP?

Requests for proposals can be sent to us directly at rfp@mertzlufft.law. We will follow up with any questions we have prior to responding.

Do you have docket management in place?

Yes. We manage a full intellectual property docket using two distinct systems. If we are engaged to prosecute an application, we track all of the relevant deadlines.

Do you provide contract SERvices

From time to time we assist other attorneys on cases ranging from litigation to transactional IP services. If you are an attorney in need of assistance, please contact us.

Do you take every case?

No. We prize integrity, so we will not “sell a patent” that lacks value. Further, as a law firm, we have to perform a rigorous conflict check prior to accepting any engagement.

Are you insured?

Yes. We carry robust errors & omissions insurance to support a global IP prosecution and litigation practice. If you require a certificate of insurance, please contact us.
