Through their team of specialists they provide the information, resources, and contacts necessary to get your invention in the hands of these important people. The best part is that our service is virtually FREE! All that you pay is the initial evaluation fee. If they come to the conclusion that your invention is indeed a great one, the rest of the licensing process is on them. This includes the cost of all our hours spent developing your invention, the marketing material, travel, presentations, legal expenses… everything. The only time they get paid is when you receive royalties from a licensing agreement. The typical Lambert & Lambert share of licensing revenue is 25-30% and so the inventor’s share is 70-75%.
