A: Obtaining a patent starts will considering the likelihood the idea can obtain a patent and submitting a patent application, if the chances of gaining a patent are considered worth the investment. A patent attorney can help with these steps. Patent attorneys can be found on Justia. Many patent attorneys will give free phone consultations to explain the process, so calling patent attorneys is a common first step.
Gaining money from a patent is a different issue. Profiting from the patent can be done in more than one way, some examples are: (a) selling the rights to the patent; (b) licensing the rights to the patent; or (c) creating a company and using the patent in that company. There are smaller consulting groups that can help with developing business plans and submitting the idea to others. A patent attorney can direct the patent owner to some of these smaller consulting groups. Other patent attorneys work in the area of small business, in addition to patent applications, and can help with the process of starting a business or selling the patent, which can include setting up a business entity or drafting contracts for licensing agreements.
