Each jurisdiction has its own unique renewal and maintenance schedule that must be adhered to and managed to protect one’s patent rights. Outsourcing the management of your patent renewals, which is a long-term and on-going process, allows assurance that a patent is protected throughout its lifetime.
In all cases, we ensure our clients are appropriately notified of all upcoming renewals, applicable renewal fees, renewals which have been completed and the date for the next renewal.
Corporate patent departments and patent law firms both large and small can benefit from using our services in terms of substantial cost savings that arise from our ability to pay fees direct to many Patent Offices, or through local agents at concessionary rates. As such, our competitive services are also viewed as combating mounting patent maintenance charges.
Our global patent annuity and maintenance services include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Management and payment of Patent annuities, maintenance fees and/or tax payments
- Management and payment of Industrial Design annuities, maintenance fees and/or tax payments
- Management and payment of Utility Model annuities, maintenance fees and/or tax payments
