Will it work? Can it be patented? How much will it cost?

Invention Assessment & Evaluation


Invention and IP Assessment is one of the most important steps in the patenting and commercialisation process. It is critical before embarking on your project to determine if your idea or invention is in fact new and if it is worthwhile to proceed with investing in patent protection, product development and manufacturing.

Can it be patented? Can it be made? Will anyone buy it?

Get your Invention or Idea Evaluated

We have assisted hundreds of inventors and companies to evaluate and protect their intellectual property.

Our invention assessment process is unique to Caska IP and ensures well informed decisions are made at the outset. We assess all inventions against three general criteria: (1) Patentability; (2) Technical Feasibility; and (3) Marketability.

Some projects require the input from additional experts such as industrial designers, and in these situations we arrange for the confidential input from these additional experts to provide a seamless and secure experience for you.

We present an overview of our findings in an “Invention Assessment Report” which is discussed with a Patent Attorney.

Criteria and Considerations

Invention Assessment

Criteria 1


Can you patent your invention? Should you patent? Will you conflict with another patent? What other kinds of IP Protection are available? Are there better ways to protection your invention?

Criteria 2

Technical Feasibility

Will it work? Can it be improved? What other technologies are available? How can it be made and how much will it cost to produce?

Criteria 3


How big is the market? How will my product compete? Will I be able to sell my product? What are the options to commercialise? Who might be interested? How will my inventions patentability and technical feasibly effect how the invention is taken to market?

Jerry Hoslin, Director & Founder, WearX

I have been involved in business consultancy for over 25 years. This has involved launching new businesses, ideas, products as well as assisting existing businesses to expand. In that time I have experienced many start ups and dealt with a large range of Intellectual Property. Andrew Caska, Principal Patent Attorney of Caska IP, has recently provided his services to one of my clients and we worked closely to formalise important patents and trade marks. His understanding of the invention, his work and timely delivery were all first class and we are very happy with the outcomes.

Grant Harms, Business Consultant, Punchbox.co

Caska IP has been more than supportive in protecting Automed Pty Ltd IP for the agricultural and medical industry. In working with IP& we have developed a clear IP strategy for patents and trademarks for our products, for the Australian market and the international market. We are more than happy with their dedication and level of service and would recommend them to any small or large organisation

David Edwards, CEO & Founder, Automed Pty Ltd

As an individual inventor, I set out to find a Patent Attorney service that was accessible and reasonably priced to assist in lodging my first patent application. I found Caska IP to be not only affordable and accessible, but highly professional and attentive to my needs and requirements. Caska IP worked with me to assist in refining my idea and expressing its unique qualities. I highly recommend Caska IP to the individual inventor.

Lester Walters, Inventor, QUAD R&D Pty Ltd

I was relatively unaware of what was needed and admit to being a bit nervous. Your perception and interpretation of what I was trying to achieve gave me great comfort. On receipt of the initial draft I was impressed with the professional presentation and the attention to detail with little alteration being required. You may rest assured that I will be using Caska IP for future projects (of which I have several) after this one is put to bed.
