"If you have doubts on patents or provisional patents applications - Rory is your man!! Great guy to work with. He is very knowdgeable on IP and what is more important, he provides advice on how things work on IP in a PRACTICAL manner. Before going for a patent or PPA, talking to Rory is great idea. Also, when filing a PPA, he makes all the process easy and smooth, providing clear explanations."
Luis Tovar
"Rory has a wealth of knowledge. He doesn't shy away from sharing his shortcuts and lessons he clearly learned from several trials to save us precious time and money. He honestly states when we are venturing outside of his areas of expertise. Rory has knowledge and integrity, I will definitely work with him again."
Selma Benkiran
"Rory is a real help. He demystifies the USPTO website and application processes. He has printscreens of most things you should be doing. He just made applying for a provisional patent to be as easy a thing anyone can do. He provides advice on a wide range of topics related to patents. I found this advice to be very good and most helpful."
Andrew Orr
"Rory was an absolute pleasure to work with. Everything he did exceeded my expectations and went above and beyond the scope of work. His experience in the entire field of inventing, as well as applying for patents, significantly reduced the time it has taken me to get a working prototype of a brand new product, as well as reduce the risk associated with the intellectual property side of the equation. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to launch a product."

Hey, This is Rory Flanagan!

I want to help you protect your invention.

I am the founder of The Pragmatic Penguin. I’m also an inventor and entrepreneur. Over the past seven years, I have been working to help fellow inventors to achieve inventing success.

I spend most of my waking hours finding, creating, and testing new tactics to drastically reduce the time and money wasting practices I see all around me.

Whether it be $15,000 patents, $10,000 prototypes, or the misleading expectations of crowdfunding, I’m working to steer inventors along a safer and more profitable path.

Don’t let overpriced inventing services and bad advice slow you down. There are a few rare people that have your best interests at heart. You just need to seek them out.

I hope we’ll work together. We’re on the same journey, and there is plenty of wisdom to be shared between us.

-Rory Flanagan
