International Patent Protection

Patent and Trademark protection in foreign jurisdictions can play a vital role in helping grow your business outside of the United States. Our attorneys can help you decide whether or not it is in your business best interest to pursue international intellectual property rights.

Patent Cooperation Treaty (“PCT”)

The Patent Cooperation Treaty created a simplified way for inventors to pursue patent rights in multiple jurisdictions. Filing a “PCT” application gives you 18 months to test the market and decide where you want to pursue patent rights and provides a simplified procedure to file for patent rights in 148 countries. We have the expertise to help you navigate the PCT application process and maximize your protection in foreign markets.
