We have a network of foreign patent and trademark associates that assist us in securing patent and trademark rights throughout the world. We have associates in Europe, Asia, Canada, Mexico, and many other countries. No matter where you would like to protect your invention, we can help you to secure patent and trademark rights there.
Before seeking foreign patent and trademark rights, we cover the pros and cons of foreign filing. For many businesses and inventors, the pros for preserving the right to seek patent and trademark rights in foreign countries is beneficial compared to the costs. However, the costs (e.g., initial filing fee and ongoing annuity fees) of filing a patent or trademark application in a foreign country may be greater than the benefits. We cover the costs of preserving the right to file versus the cost to file an application in foreign countries.
In all of this, we take a practical approach to foreign filing. We understand the difficulties in building a profitable business overseas and that it is not simply replicating what you have here in the United States. We cover these difficulties as well as the financial forecasts so that you understand what to expect in the future should you pursue foreign patent and trademark rights.
