When you entrust your UK or European patent or design work to Bartle Read, you know you will be in safe hands.
We will represent your clients directly before the European Patent Office, the UK Intellectual Property Office and OHIM and we have long experience of all the relevant procedures including oppositions, appeals and hearings.
We recognise how important it can be to give your clients accurate budgets for their foreign filing programmes. We will always be glad to give you a fixed quotation in pounds sterling or dollars for tasks such as European regional phase entry, based on case identifier data such as a PCT number.
In terms of reporting, our normal practice is to be proactive, offering strategies for overcoming objections where it seems appropriate, but above all we will work to your instructions. If you prefer us to pass on office actions and other official correspondence with a minimum of review and cost then that is what we will do.
We prioritise responsiveness. We know you can’t keep your clients waiting. We won’t keep you waiting either.
