On this patent Professor success story, you'll meet inventor Gerard DeFay, who took his product idea and turned it into a profitable business with the help of the patent Professor John Rizvi,
my name is Gerrard to say, I've been boating and yachting most of my life and decided to develop a product that I had in mind for a few years. And so the best route to do that was to first protect that intellectual property by seeking out a patent attorney,
Gerard saw the need for a better option for floating workstations. So he created first of flow, which is an inflatable docking system that is easy to install impacts up to almost nothing, meaning that you have more time to relax and enjoy yourself when you're on the water in the convenience of portability and efficient storage when you're not. After obtaining his patent with the help of John Rizvi, Gerard sole focus was set on making this product available for the consumers. So we rushed into manufacturing, which ended up slowing the process down,
we initially started producing our products in the East. I had issues with my manufacturers, to the point where after many years and finally having major issues with product quality, I had to begin production here myself,
since taking over the production himself. Gerards business and product have grown in ways that before seemed out of his control.
And now that we are doing a lot of custom work. Our day to day business is research and development. We've developed on a product in a way that I want you to develop it several years ago, but my Eastern partners couldn't seem to get it right.
This changes letting the once again seek out the assistance of a patent attorney.
But as my product developed, the patents themselves become more and more robust. I now have four annexes to this patent. So basically is the patent which used to be a single volume has now become a novel.
In this time choosing John to help him secure multiple annexes for his patent was a no brainer.
Everything that he said he can do from the stuff he's delivered, I feel I can trust them. I feel like he actually cares. If I need to get a hold of him, I can get a hold of him. I don't feel like I'm a number.
Unfortunately, there are a few times where this trust in John's expertise became more useful to Gerard than he ever would have hoped.
A few times it's come into life where I had issues of infringement. For me, John, put my mind at ease with regards to protecting myself. And it gave me the confidence to go forth and carry on doing what I'm doing.
All of this makes it easy for Gerard to advise other inventors on what decision to make when searching for a patent attorney to help them turn their idea into a reality.
John's your man, he's gonna tell you straight up whether or not it's a good idea or not. If he doesn't think it's a good idea, he's honest about it. If he thinks it's a good idea, he's very encouraging about it. He takes a genuine interest in what he does, I can see that he is exactly where he needs to be he was made to be a patent attorney.
