Filing Services & Costs
We offer the full range of IP filing services that you would expect from a firm of European patent attorneys. All of our work is carried out to the highest standard, with great reliability and at reasonable cost. Example services that we provide include:
European utility patent filings
We can file European (EP), German (DE), United Kingdom (GB) and French (FR) patent applications. We will reliably file your European patent applications for a low cost fixed service charge, which we believe is unrivalled in terms of cost among European patent attorney firms. This low cost is made possible by streamlining the administration and overheads employed by traditional European patent attorney firms. We file direct (12 months from first filing) patent applications and national and regional phase entry patent applications from International (PCT) applications. If you would like to a quote for our patent filing service that includes the patent office fees, please contact us here.
European design patent filings
We file European (EU), United Kingdom (GB) and French (FR) design patent applications. For EU design patent applications (prosecution through the EUIPO), we offer an unbeatable package for filing to grant for a low cost fixed fee per design patent including all official fees. Generally, the design patent will be granted within one week of filing the application. If you would like further information on our design patent filing-to-grant service, please contact us here.
German utility model patent filings
Germany offers a utility model patent (or petty patent) with protection that lasts 10 years (as compared to the 20 year term for regular patents). These utility model patents can be effective forms of protection for industries where a 10-year patent term is sufficient. Utility model patents offer the same protection as regular patents and can be taken to grant without search and examination. This allows grant to be obtained in Germany in months (rather than years as with regular patents). If you would like further information on our German utility models, please contact us here.
European Trademark filings
We file European (EU), United Kingdom (GB) trademarks for our clients. We offer a low cost fixed fee per Trademark filing. If you would like further information on our Trademark filing service, please contact us here.
