Letter from the President
(an experienced and successful patent attorney)
Unlike mega-corporations, individual inventors do not invent by committee and then delegate product development to R&D, legal, and marketing departments. Instead, they are faced with doing all of this on their own. I personally recognize that each of these components is critical to success and that having an investment partner and experienced guidance can make all the difference in the world, especially to the individual inventor. For over a decade with Harshaw Research, I have been involved in all of these facets of new product development and have repeatedly seen products enter the marketplace as a result of HRI's methodology for turning ideas into assets.
Once a new product concept has been professionally optimized through concept design engineering and legally protected through the efforts of Harshaw's own registered patent attorney, HRI anticipates investing in the commercialization process on the basis of a percentage participation in the client revenue produced.
I believe that there are two methods of establishing a competitive advantage: do things better than others, or do things differently. Harshaw Research applies both of these principles by forming strategic business alliances with clients to bring new products, ideas, and concepts to the marketplace for the mutual benefit of HRI and its clients.

Patent, Trademark, and Copyright Philosophy
Should YOU get a Patent?
Market Based Decisions
The greatest asset to an individual (small entity) inventor may be his patent protection as that provides the basis to (1) prevent competition and (2) provide the legal basis for licensing the invention to a larger company in exchange for royalty payments. Harshaw Research, Inc. is owned and operated by a registered patent attorney who has protected hundreds of inventions with patents and trademarks according to the industry leading HRI business model.
