Our office provides services at each stage of proceedings from starting to an application through obtaining protection up to its expiration. We also advise our clients on the most profitable variant of proceedings depending on their expectations and plans for further development.

Our many years of experience in supervising proceedings before the Polish and the European Patent Office is confirmed by the fact that for most of the applications that we have filed, patent protection has been granted, including cases seemingly hopeless that we took over after proceedings had already begun.

We use our own tailored patent management system dedicated to international patent proceedings that allows the supervision of them in an efficient and reliable way.
