Selling or acquiring patent portfolios or legal documents.

As a patent paralegal I saw many legal documents to transfer patent portfolios cause hick-ups. As straightforward as it may seem, many do not fit well, when used outside of the original jurisdiction. “Company A sells to Company B patents numbers 1,2,3!” You have the document made out and signed by both parties and you should be good to go. Drawn up bearing in mind national legislation and legal habits, but not having been checked abroad, these may result in serious delays in obtaining ownership of the patent portfolio, as additional documents become required, that again need signing and legalization.

I suggest to look at this beforehand and make up documents suitable for Europe.

We can advize you how to avoid delay caused by rejection by the European Patent Office.
