As an engineer, I need to ask the right questions of counsel because they are very busy with other projects. My project is blessed with fine attorneys, however, it is up to me to submit the application to the USPTO. Although I have the experience with the mechanics the how of .pdf .docx, I anticipate needing assistance with qualitative matters such as:
- What documents do I need to file?
- Are said documents filled out correctly?
We are approaching the deadline to file, so we are making a 'final-push' to produce the best possible NPA submission. My 'spider-sense' tells me that is that there are other questions that I should be other questions, however, this is my first patent attempt and I should consult the wisdom of the community (preferably those who have submitted patents successfully to the USPTO).
What other questions should I be asking the attorneys to enable the best possible outcome? The first two questions above are NOT questions that I seek to have answered in this thread, but examples of questions that should and have been asked.
