a contract for
patent legal services
Fitch, Even, Tabin & Flannery, Chicago, IL
an estimated $60,000.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
prosecution of patent applications is a very technical field of service and each project requires a high level of understanding of the technology behind the invention. Each transaction with the U.S. Patent Office is governed by strict time limits. It is crucial that the continuity of services on each invention be maintained to insure timely turn around as well as expert analysis. Therefore, it is important that Fitch, Even, Tabin & Flannery continue to process all current patent applications assigned to them by SIU School of Medicine before July 1, 1999.
