Adrian picks up the concept idea and principles you describe extremely quickly for patent applications. He then writes the application and explains in plain English exactly what is and is not covered; being very commercially aware he offers invaluable advice for the application design [variations of and possible improvements] through to the enforcing of the patent.
I have used Adrian for numerous patents and over many years, he is great to work with and has inexhaustible patience - a true wordsmith.P Braybrook at Levolux A T Ltd.

If you have an invention which is suitable for many areas around the world, should you file an international patent application straightaway?
If you are sure the invention is unique, then file an international (PCT) patent application straightaway. However, initially it is likely to be cheaper filing a domestic patent application and obtaining a good quality initial search from the local patent office. If the search is positive, then with greater confidence file your PCT within 12 months and with a priority claim.
You can avoid large extra official fees when filing your US patent application by changing any multiple dependency claims to single dependency, so that your later claims only depend back to one previous claim.
By also limiting your claims to no more than three independent claims and to no more than twenty claims altogether, extra official fees will also be avoided.
