patents

Protecting the results of an innovation by means of the patent is the optimal way to monetize the investment in R&D, seeing as how the intangible asset of the company (the IP) contributes in the creation of value for our clients in the private and public sectors.

As specialists in the sector, backed by our experience and international presence, Pons Patentes y Marcas Internacional offers comprehensive advise and ongoing dialogue with our clients, helping them choose the best strategy for the protection of their inventions anywhere in the world.

 

Our main services are:

  • Previous strategic advice: patentability reports, commercial viability reports, possible industrial property right infringements from third parties, reports on Freedom to operate and reports of technological surveillance.
  • Drafting applications, processing and validating national, European and PCT (Patent Cooperation Treaty) patents.
  • Consulting on opposition and appeal procedures before the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office (SPTO) and in Europe, before the European Patent Office (EPO). If circumstances allow us, we can also intermediate in the negotiation and agreement between our clients and third parties for the amicable settlement of a dispute over the use of a patent.
  • Integral consulting: we guide you through the whole process of previous analysis, registration, renewal, monitoring and the defense of patents and utility models.
