Formalities services

Behind the scenes, our attorneys are supported by a team of highly experienced and qualified IP formalities experts, who deal with the mechanics of filing applications and submissions at the patent offices, maintaining our computer records system, and dealing in general with all formality aspects of administering IP portfolios.

Our formalities team has considerable experience of assisting larger clients who have their own IP teams, but who want to outsource aspects of the formalities function. Our team can work closely with you, entering deadlines and maintaining your records system, and carrying out all formality functions for you, or just those that you choose to entrust us with.

A speciality of ours is the transfer of IP ownership, including the recording of assignments, mergers, name or address changes, as well as licensing and mortgaging arrangements.
