Services for Foreign Clients

Colby Nipper regularly files, into the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), foreign-filed patent applications for its European, Chinese, and Japanese clients.

Due to our extensive experience in handling foreign-filed applications, we suggest simple pre-filing amendments to conform the specification, claims, and drawings to US practice. This avoids many common but costly USPTO objections and rejections. By so doing, we reduce our clients’ prosecution costs and speed up allowance of their applications. Our pre-filing amendments also help our clients avoid excess claim fees while broadening the scope of the claims consistent with the disclosure.

In more detail, Colby Nipper amends and files foreign-filed patent applications at the USPTO, including US non-provisional applications, US national stage entry PCT applications, and US design patent applications.

Please contact Colby Nipper if you have any questions or would like a recommendation from one or our multinational clients.
