Renewals / Annuities

Our in-house patent renewals and annuities and trade mark renewals service is customised to suit each client’s individual needs. Unlike many other firms, through our network of over 50 in-house patent attorneys and trade mark attorneys across Europe, and hundreds of trusted local associates worldwide, we can also provide complementary services such as assignments, changes of name, licence recordals, legal and opposition advice and global portfolio management services.

We offer complete flexibility, and build strong working relationships with our clients to provide a completely tailored service that provides the information they want, when and how they want it.

John Young, Head of Renewals & EP Validations

Our services cover every aspect of the renewals process. Operating in all major European languages, we issue reminders and invoices in GBP, USD or EUR to a schedule agreed with and tailored to you. You have the option of instructed or automatic payments, and we provide a completely customised client experience.
