WORLD-STAGE PLAYERS IN IP LAW
We represent creative and inventive clients worldwide, including domestic companies selling products in the global marketplace and non-U.S. companies and law firms seeking counsel and advice on IP protection in the U.S.
PATENT COOPERATION TREATY (PCT)
The PCT makes international patenting accessible to companies of all sizes by enabling them to apply for patent rights in any number of PCT member countries (there are now 148) by filing a single international application. Our attorneys have filed thousands of PCT applications over the years and we have the luxury of tapping the expertise of one of the foremost authorities on the international patent system, Jay Erstling. Jay served as the Director of the Office of the PCT from 2002 to 2007. With WIPO, he oversaw the worldwide administration of the PCT system and had responsibility for the development of PCT policies, including large-scale regulatory reforms. To discuss your company’s PCT strategy or to schedule a training session for your in-house professionals, contact Jay at Patterson Thuente IP.
