U.S. Practice

The United States is one of the largest markets for technology and products in the world, and thus is an interesting and sometimes crucial market for our clients. Because patent laws differ between countries, and there are nuances that can make your patents and portfolio stronger with the right U.S. counsel, we now offer direct U.S. filings, prosecution and advice from our NLO offices.

 

NLO is able to offer this unique service for our clients by having our very own in-house US-specialists authorized to act before the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO). Since we are authorized to represent clients directly before the USPTO, we do not require the use of an additional U.S. agent or law firm. 

 

This gives our clients a more direct route to the U.S. market, and can result in cost savings over having to do U.S. filings and patent prosecution through a U.S. based agent or law firm.

 

Additionally, our U.S. specialists are based out of our The Hague offices. That means they are able to meet with and work more closely with our clients, tailoring an approach with a full picture of the client’s overall goals.

Own in-house U.S. specialists
