Filing and prosecution of European patent, trade mark and design applications
We represent clients in other European countries in proceedings before the European Patent Office (EPO) and European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). Clients often prefer to file such applications in the English language, particularly where corresponding applications in the US or other jurisdictions are planned.
Validation of European patents in the United Kingdom
We are able to act as address for service in relation to European patents that take effect in the UK. Many clients and associates in other parts of Europe consider it advisable to appoint local representatives, even where this is not mandatory, and choose us because of our efficient procedures and reasonable charges.
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 (UKIPO).
Adamson Jones provides a range of intellectual property services for clients and associates within the UK, Europe and worldwide.
To discuss your European intellectual property requirements with a qualified patent and trade mark attorney in confidence, and at your convenience, please call us on +44 (0)115 947 7977 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
In the recent decision, T1665/16, the Boards of Appeal discussed the ability of a third party to intervene at the appeal stage and, in doing so, introduce new prior art documents into the proceedings that would be inadmissible if they had been filed by an opponent already party to the proceedings.
