The Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) assists applicants in seeking patent protection internationally for their inventions, helps patent Offices with their patent granting decisions, and facilitates public access to a wealth of technical information relating to those inventions. By filing one international patent application under the PCT, applicants can simultaneously seek protection for an invention in a very large number of countries.
Not only does RLG work hard to secure patent protection for its clients both domestically and abroad, we also provide clients with IP strategy consulting services. When our clients have IP needs that require obtaining protection in the US and in other parts of the world, we help our clients develop a plan for obtaining the IP protections that they need.
Timing is often crucial when seeking IP protection in multiple parts of the world – one missed filing deadline could jeopardize your IP rights! We believe its important to work closely with our clients to develop a customized IP strategy that is tailor-made to satisfy our clients’ domestic and international IP protection needs.
