Information for Associates in Japan
We have extensive experience of working with clients and associates in Japan.
Filing and prosecution of European patent applications: We have extensive experience of all aspects of EPO practice and procedure, and deliver high quality services at competitive rates.
For the filing of European patent applications based on International (PCT) cases, we invite you to register on our portal www.pct2ep.com, at which you can obtain fixed quotes for EPO regional phase entry at very attractive rates.
Cost control: Our actionplus services, which give you the greatest control over ongoing costs, have been welcomed by many clients, including associates in Japan for whom elimination of unexpected charges is particularly important.
Filing and prosecution of EU trade mark (EUTM) and design applications: We can obtain EU trade mark and design registrations, efficiently and competitively.
Filing and prosecution of UK national patent, trade mark and design applications: If you opt for national registrations, rather than Europe-wide applications, we are able to represent you before the United Kingdom Intellectual Property Office.
Translations: We can arrange translations into English of incoming cases, or we will work with translations you provide. In either case, translations will be subject to review by one of our patent attorneys and we will consult with you should any modifications appear to be necessary.
Charges, fixed fees and billing: We can bill in GB Pounds (Sterling) or in US Dollars if that is your preference. We will also be pleased to provide fixed quotes for the filing of applications and for other actions wherever possible.
