Our Foreign Filing Network

We collaborate with a long-standing established network of law firms in countries around the world to protect our clients’ IP rights in nearly every jurisdiction. For over thirty years, we have leveraged this network and taken a strategic approach to ensure that our clients’ inventions, processes, creative works and brands maintain and grow in value. When disputes arise, our foreign associates stand at the ready to help to avoid litigation or to mount a rigorous defense in court when necessary.

US Filing for Foreign Clients

Whether working through in-house patent counsel or a foreign law firm, our team develops and implements patent, copyright and trademark strategies for foreign clients doing business in the United States. We ensure that foreign companies utilize all relevant strategies to facilitate the most efficient and effective experience with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and we successfully litigate infringement matters on behalf of our clients.
