About Kaufhold & Dix Patent Law

At Kaufhold & Dix Patent Law, we have over 20 years of experience practicing intellectual property law — patents, trademarks, copyrights and more — and we've successfully obtained over 1,900 patents for our clients. With offices in Edina, Minnesota, and Sioux Falls, South Dakota, our registered patent attorneys are licensed to represent clients before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and ready to assist you with all your transactional intellectual property needs.

We understand that deciding to hire a lawyer to help you protect your invention, trade name or artistic work is a big step — one that is often hindered by the cost of hiring professional help. At Kaufhold & Dix Patent Law, we make it easy for our clients to determine upfront how much it will cost them to protect their intellectual property — with our complete service flat fee structure, we take the mystery out of legal fees.

One Flat Fee, Complete Service

Unlike many other intellectual property law firms, Kaufhold & Dix Patent Law charges one flat legal fee for what other firms bill hourly or separate into several services. Our complete service flat fee doesn't include any hidden costs, miscellaneous fees, surprise billings or additional legal services to complete the patenting process. We will let you know from the start what your total out-of-pocket cost will be for the entire patent application process — from initial filing, to the patent drawings, and including office action responses (arguments) with the USPTO Patent Examiner. Everything you need to get through the process until a final determination is made by the Examiner is covered by our single fee.

We also offer free initial consultations to all prospective clients. We strongly believe that clients should know upfront whether it is worth their time and money to retain us to help them protect their assets. With straightforward, knowledgeable advice from the start, you'll be able to confidently decide whether it's worth it to move ahead, whether you need to spend more time perfecting your invention, or whether the cost outweighs the benefit of pursuing protection for your work.

Experienced Professionals In A Casual Atmosphere

We understand sharing new ideas or asking questions about something as unfamiliar as patent law can be intimidating. At Kaufhold & Dix Patent Law, we provide skilled service in a casual yet professional atmosphere. We pride ourselves as being approachable and down-to-earth, but our more than 20 years of experience ensures that we have the knowledge required for such a complex area - knowledge which is vital to the protection of your valuable assets.
