Patent Protection Overseas

Adamson Jones offers a range of patent services that enable you to protect and establish your products and services in growing or dominant markets. The consideration of intellectual property rights in overseas territories is vital to establishing your business in those markets and enabling growth.

For many intellectual property rights, decisions must be made in respect of protection in overseas markets at an early stage of the patent application process. Effective planning is therefore essential, and we work with you to devise commercially realistic strategies for protection of your intellectual property in overseas markets.

Overseas Associates

Our network of carefully selected overseas associates enables us to provide our services in respect of every country of the world, including established markets such as the US and Japan, as well as emerging markets such as China and India. This allows protection of your intellectual property in these markets and the ability to avoid the intellectual property of others. 

Adamson Jones also provides a range of specific services for trade mark protection overseas and registered design protection in overseas markets, to ensure that your intellectual property is protected around the world.

We have compiled a summary of the issues and procedures involved in patenting inventions around the world. This includes answers to FAQs with regards a national patent application, a European patent application and a PCT patent application.
