European Patent Validation

Our European patent validation service offers comprehensive coverage, including direct validation in 15 European territories via our own offices.

Our streamlined service provides time and cost savings for our clients, as well as the reassurance that your work is being handled by one of the largest intellectual property attorney firms in Europe.

John Young, Head of EP Validations

Our team of in-house validations administrators can assist with all validations formalities from start to finish. They’ll project manage the process quickly and efficiently, requesting all the relevant translations through our in-house translation service, and liaising with our own attorneys and partner attorney firms as necessary.

Our service is unique in the market, combining the expertise of an established European patent attorney firm with the cost savings offered by more recently-established non-patent qualified firms who act simply as intermediaries for your validations. Our clients have the added reassurance that their work will be overseen by a Murgitroyd Director.
