IP Services for patents

Validation services

Over the last decade we have continuously developed our EP validation service in which we can act as a gateway for all your validation work in Europe. After we receive your instruction we will validate your European patent in all the required designated countries. This can result in cost savings. After this we will set things in motion both through our in-house translation department and through our network of preferred European agents to work on the high quality translation of the validations. During this process you will be provided with all the information available about the status of your validations.

Renewal services

In addition to our validation services we can also provide you with renewal services for your entire portfolio, based on the following values: Quality, Operational Excellence and Cost Control. We provide this service for a fixed fee per payment per year. This way you will have a highly predictable total fee structure, helping you to make a well informed decision whether to proceed with your patent matters before any investment is made.

Whenever there is a change in ownership, address or name in your IP portfolio it may be necessary to make proper adjustments in the local registers of the IP Offices. It is recommendable to have a change of owner details of the patent recorded, because according to most laws, such a change can only have effect against third parties after it has been officially recorded. This is a complex and time consuming job which requires knowhow of the local rules and requirements. We can help you throughout the entire process to make sure you don’t risk loss of rights or ownership.
