Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Regards so-called "Evaluation Report" "Agenting Review/Intake on Inventions" pitched on their Website:

"Evaluation Report" information they sent me is scant and not much beyond what one is already aware of and easily accessed/on-line researched info; not much to the evaluation which is really just a fee for their time to look at people's information coupled with "Resources" information they send one, the first page of which are the Owners/Company's other companies/affiliates (I looked up company Info on Secretary of States Entity searches for each) selling services to Inventors...second page has general resources any one can easily pull up on a an on-line search.

Overall the site is polished and seems like it is the real thing, but DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY, THEN HAVE TO TANGLE WITH THEM TO GET YOUR REFUND!  

Sales they are really pitching is for their OWN other website based services (ENHANCE PRODUCT DESIGN, INC. [continued below]....
..... Selling INVENTION DESIGN, DEVELOPMENT & MARKETING INVENT SPARK Selling Website & Promotion services; etc.,) once they fleece one on their landing page for an "Evaluation Report"
- basically billing one; EXAMPLE of their Competitor Davidson will review your Info and has billable services for you to decided on/sell to you upfront - while Lambert bills you upfront for a "report" that is essentially on their "decision making to become your Agent/take on your Invention" (you are PAYING FOR A REPORT ON THEM DECIDING ON BECOMING AN AGENT FOR YOU/YOUR INVENTION - their time to look at your information, like Scammer "book publishing agents" bill "reading fees", but at least they label it as such)  - and give you Resources to "Companies they have Negotiated Discounts on Services with to take your Invention to next levels, etc.,

BUT THEY DO NOT LET YOU KNOW THESE HIGHLIGHTED COMPANIES THEY ARE RECOMMENDING ARE THEIR OWN COMPANIES - they negotiated with themselves to give one a discount, HUH???) to get people to sign on while they are really selling their other billable services/sites/affiliate revenue producing partners and a few free/general industry referrals to tie a bow on everything!!

They seem to have covered their bases and have working relationships with other services providers to sell each others products and services and talk each others services up/above board, etc., assurances so one can feel like they can trust them!! Which would be just fine as business promotions go if the particular services for Lambert Invent where not based on misleading Advertising, etc.

I communicated with company and requested immediate refund, got response with excuses that did not respond to my refund request suggesting my refund request was because "my invention was my baby and I was not happy they did not select my Invention" - what a Presumption and insult when I am requesting a refund because of their misleading advertising!!!!  They also included additional patched up Info (an expanded view of a Patent sample, easily pulled on-line) sent, meant to try to convince me otherwise.

I hold firm, and only want my refund immediately. AS OF YET THEY HAVE NOT REFUNDED ME.

What a load of hogwash on Lambert & Lambert Rebuttal!!!

AUTHOR: Anonymous2011 - (USA)

Patent Sample (AND I SHOULD LIKE TO SEE PROOF OF WHAT THEY PAID FOR IT AS THEY CLAIM TO HAVE, as I am sure they just pulled it from a general on-line search as I have stated in pointing out over-blown valuation of "Services" being pitched) they refer to was only sited WHEN I initially questioned the scant info/the seeming lack of actual work on their end other than pulling up sample data that is simple to access for all in what they sent in so-called "report" and though one item being sited by them may be categorized in family of marketing as mine, it does not resolve needs as mine does, and is far limited/for other particular use; where I pointed this out as part of reasons for REFUND REQUEST, they explained value of the "Report" being in their decision making break-down...

Now/Here a disclosure/confirmation on this venue on their misleading, nay - frankly deceptive Advertising as I would not have had any knowledge if I had not done some searches on companies they were referring - which in no way repairs harm of it as it stands! Why not correct this on their site and materials they send out? This ALSO being an ISSUE for me, as it should for all that they market services to - What did/do they NOT GET in my Refund Request for this BEING A MAIN CAUSE/REASON for my REFUND Request as well????

Refer to me as “Him” instead of “Her” too? They do so know their clients, HUH? Am I angry at being Hoodwinked? I should say so, even if I am keeping it civil - calling me out for "angry Emails in same vain as Complaint on this Site" is laughable!!!

I refused to call because of nonsensical response received, and will now do so ONCE for confirmation of refund only, and nothing beyond that.

Respond to this report!

Dear Reader,

This report is rather regrettable considering the circumstances.  The inventor paid for an evaluation of his invention which seeks to determine license feasibility and thus guides us on whether or not to represent the invention on contingency.  Since we sign a Confidentiality Agreement I'm not at liberty to discuss the details, however the result was that our patent search discovered a patent that is very similar to his invention, thus limiting the likelihood of success of his item.

Upon receiving the report, it is not clear that he is aware of this important point and we have requested to speak with him on the phone, yet he has refused.  This certainly makes it difficult for us to rectify since the inventor isn't even willing to communicate with us, other than through very angry emails similar to what he has written in his original report.

In addition, he has mentioned that we have other companies that are listed in our inventor resources section of our evaluation, which is true.  Lambert & Lambert has been in business for over a decade, representing inventors and product developers on contingency.  In 2009 we founded Invent Spark, Inc. with the goal of offering inventors an inexpensive way for them to promote their inventions online and help them connect with investors, marketers, manufacturers or licensees. Also, in 2010 we founded Enhance Product Design, Inc., a product design company that primarily services Lambert & Lambert projects. We were paying exorbitant development fees to outsource design and development and found it a cost effective way to better serve our clients at L&L. Enhance has since grown and although it does some fee-based design and prototyping work for inventors, it is primarily working with small and medium sized companies involved in consumer markets. In the interest of full disclosure I thought it was worth mentioning.

I hope this clarifies how Lambert & Lambert works.  Yes, we turn down inventions that we feel won't be successful, but I would rather remain honest and tell inventors what I really think about their invention, rather than fill them with hope to get them to spend thousands on their invention.

All my best,

Trevor Lambert
President, Lambert & Lambert, Inc.
