A patent provides an owner with up to 20-years of protection. During this time, other parties can be prevented from making, using, or selling the invention. Patents can be invaluable to their owners but also affect our day-to-day lives.
Prowse Chowne LLP strives to protect the legal rights of innovators to their inventions. We don’t just assist with patent protection, but also guide you from the start to the end. Whether you want to know if you are eligible for a patent or the legal viability of a patent, we can help you.
We provide the following services in the field of patents:
Drafting and Filing Patents
We guide you through the process of drafting a patent, creating its content, legal proceedings associated with it and the proper ways to file it. We provide legal assistance in the earlier stages where sometimes mistakes can occur while filing the patent.
Customized Strategies for Patent Prosecution
Patent prosecution describes the interaction between the patent office and applicants in relation to their patent applications. We act as agents for this purpose, allowing us to correspond with the patent office on your behalf and assist during the examination process.
Patent Portfolio Management
The true value of a single patent is derived from its weightage in a portfolio. If there are multiple patents to be handled, Prowse Chowne LLP provides a continuous organized strategy focused on enhancing the value of the patents and minimizing the risks.
Negotiating and Preparing other Licensing Agreements
Licensing agreements give the licensee the right to have access to the invention. This can be over a period of time or permanently. We negotiate with interested parties on your behalf and provide services associated with licensing agreements essential to such deals.
A patent audit is the systematic review of the patents being used or acquired by the business. A patent audit can be carried out for many reasons:
- To determine the strategy of when and what to file.
- To square out any loopholes in the patent coverage that can be used by competitors.
- To determine the present value of the patents.
- To uncover new opportunities and risks.
We at Prowse Chowne LLP provide systematic audit services for your patents to help you maximize benefits.
