Why protect

Inventions of products and/or processes and investments made should be protected to avoid others from taking advantage of them, and thus to assure competitive advantage. 

At globalisation level, patents and utility models can facilitate access to funding and offer advantages and security in the negotiation with local partners. Patents and utility models are companies’ valuable assets and contribute to enhance the successful image of companies’ business and products.

What it offers

We offer services for obtaining, maintain and defending patents and utility models in all our clients’ target markets. We are part of their team, from the moment they have the idea: during the conception and the development of their invention, we search for Intellectual Property applications/rights in the field of our clients’ invention, so to avoid unnecessary work and investment; once the invention is achieved, we outline the most appropriate strategies to fit our clients’ target markets and investments, for obtaining protection of their invention; we maintain and defend our clients’ patents/utility models in multiple markets, in collaboration with our professional partners.
