We are a top-tier firm of patent and trademark attorneys, providing a robust and broad intellectual property application service in the US and Europe.
A second-to-none specialist firm.
What I have most enjoyed about working with EIP has been the level of technical excellence and broad knowledge.
The client provides an instruction to file in both Europe and the US with an English specification. We docket this instruction on our fully integrated records system, which allows our attorneys worldwide to act as one office.
Our international department processes the application documents, including a review by an attorney with an appropriate technical background. Special reporting instructions are docketed. We inform clients of any changes, recommendations, or requests.
After ensuring compliance with the different US and EP requirements, applications are filed in each jurisdiction and reports sent to the client.
US and EP attorneys work together on the same management system, for consistent, coordinated, and efficient prosecution. Typically, they report separately to the client. However, reporting for both jurisdictions via a single attorney is also possible, where required.
After applications are granted, we can handle ongoing maintenance if the client wishes, or transfer to the client’s chosen annuity service provider.
