Hi, I'm Fernando Dutra, Co. Founder of Wilson Dutra Innovation law, a boutique intellectual property, virtual law firm based out of Jacksonville, Florida.
We focus on protecting inventions through patents, branding through trademarks and agreements that help you protect or leverage these assets as you come up on a scheduled discovery call with a Wilson Dutra member, and we're all incredibly excited to meet you.
We recorded this video so you know what to expect during that discovery call. Our discovery calls are for people who are interested in potentially hiring our firm to work alongside them to solve their issues. During this time we'd like to learn more about you. Why you reached out, what problem you might be trying to solve, and whether we can potentially guide you.
We really want to know more about you what brought you here, and what your goals are. So expect a lot of questions about that from our team attorney. Client privilege applies, even if you never hire us, and even if you're speaking to a non attorney on our team. If we can support you, we may discuss next steps with you like how to retain us and pricing.
Since timing might be important, we found that having a business partner or a significant other on the call, can be tremendously helpful to streamline communications. This way we can answer any questions that come up.
Please let us know if we need to reschedule, to accommodate anyone else who needs to join our conversation, and we'll check when we start speaking to you. If anyone else needs to be there as a note during this discovery call, we can give general information about intellectual property matters like how long the process take to hear back from the United States Patent and Trademark Office, how long it takes to prepare and file a trademark application, or what the overall patent application process might look like.
There are some very strict rules about providing legal advice to someone who has not retained the law firm. As of this recording, a non attorney is not allowed to to give legal advice during this discovery call. We cannot give legal advice, as it pertains to your specific legal situation, because you have not retained us yet as your law firm. So if there are specific questions like, what can I do about ABC as it applies to? We unfortunately cannot answer those details until we are retained, even though we really want to.
There are some circumstances that come up as well. Speaking of confidentiality, where you might ask us to sign or review an NDA, we are happy to do so, but we cannot provide that document ourselves. So if you're thinking about that, please let us know before our call, we're happy to accommodate that. But just a reminder that attorney client privilege applies regardless. We are looking forward to meeting with you and learning more about your intellectual property needs. So if there's anything in the meantime that you have questions about, please let us know you are about to receive a few emails leading up to that conversation that we hope will make our time together incredibly valuable.
So we will talk later. Take care.
