Making sure your clients are protected.
How we can help
Filemot Technology Law Ltd is a small business but an ideal partner for a business of any size. However big your in-house department an external sounding board can be valuable. We do not undertake volume work for large corporations but when you need personal attention to a particular problem you can join some very impressive corporates, from computer companies to construction companies, who know how to use our expertise
Global trademark portfolios can get out of hand and we specialise in keeping careful (paperless) records for our clients that allow a consistent strategy to be applied. Watching for conflicts on the trademark registers and managing oppositions and settlements is a particular expertise. I have acted as a representative before the European Union IPO since it was created and subject to #Brexit can manage your oppositions and filings. I frequently represent clients before the UK trade mark registry in oppositions both as opponent and that or applicant and will advise you on settlements and whether to use the fast track or spend time on evidence.
We act as agents before the UK IPO and the European Patent Office (this will not be affected by #Brexit) and can undertake national phase entries of PCT applications. For work before the European patent office, official fees (which are heavy) are usually required in advance.
Maintaining a patent portfolio is a necessary administrative task frequently outsourced to external providers. It pays to take reality check from time to time to audit both your portfolio and your provider. Increasingly patent offices are providing easy-to-use online payment services that can help those who aren’t offered the best rates by large providers keep their costs in check.
As a solicitor advocate, I can both conduct litigation in the United Kingdom and act as an advocate. The purpose of patents is to provide you with a monopoly and if there is infringement, then prompt action can prevent further damage. Patent litigation is not only for the pharmaceutical and telecommunications industries who feel obliged to spend millions. The U.K.’s Intellectual property enterprise Court has made patent litigation possible on a much more modest budget.
