Getting our clients strong patents that serve their commercial needs is a core part of our practice at Bartle Read.
We have very extensive experience in crafting patent applications that can survive the scrutiny of Patent Examiners and that explain and claim the essence of a client's invention.
As Chartered Patent Attorneys and European Patent Attorneys, we represent you directly before the European Patent Office, the UK Intellectual Property Office and the International Bureau of the World Intellectual Property Organisation. For overseas filing programmes elsewhere in the world we, like other patent attorney firms, make use of trusted local attorneys familiar with local laws and requirements.
After filing a patent application goes through a lengthy process of official scrutiny with various formalities to be completed and deadlines to be observed. We maintain a cutting edge records system to ensure that the right steps are taken at the right time and when Examiners raise objections we provide clear guidance as to how they should be addressed and overcome.
