We are European patent attorneys and we validate European patent applications
Granted European patents must be validated in the European Patent Convention territories where protection is to be maintained. We provide an efficient and cost-effective service to carry out validation for clients for whom we have prosecuted European patent applications.
We also provide a cost effective service to register as UK address for service for European patents which is used by some other European representatives. The UK is a party to the London Agreement and there are no formal validation requirements, although it is necessary to provide a UK address to be sure of receiving official communications and this is a service which we provide. We forward all communications received, inculding letters indicating that a renewal fee has not been paid but in line with common practice we do not forward renewal reminder letters in advance of a renewal deadline. We can also provide a renewal service where required.
