Handling patent annuities can be a time consuming process and as your portfolio increases in size it also increases in complexity. We offer a simple solution, managing all necessary payments on your behalf as well as keeping track of upcoming deadlines. Different countries have different lifecycle requirements for patent annuity fees and many jurisdictions have their own individual rules to ensure full uninterrupted protection of IP rights. For those with an IP Portfolio that has more complex requirements, our experts can assist you throughout the renewals process with detailed insight into all local and international legislation, procedures and obligations. Our state of the art online platform is designed for the management of IP Rights and we offer security, confidentiality and cost effectiveness as well as fully customisable solutions dependent on your needs and portfolio size.
