Intellectual Property Prosecution

Identifying your intellectual property is complicated enough.

Pushing your application through intellectual property offices (IPOs) adds more complications. Plus potential distraction from business too. Welcome to intellectual property prosecution.



Is your business a start-up or an established European multinational? Either way our skills and experience simplify the challenges of intellectual property prosecution in a pan-European environment. From handling examiners’ objections to publishing application notices, our IP lawyers simplify IP prosecution for you.

Taking the worry out of IP prosecution

A 2013 report from the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) highlighted the fact that ‘Apart from monetary amounts, 25% of Respondents identified management time of business executives and wasted time of other participants in proceedings, lost productivity and lost business opportunities as costs incurred.’

While our IP management solutions team takes the worry out of IP prosecution, you do what you do best – building and managing a profitable business.

  • Management of filing from requests for substantive examination, to successful completion of prosecution.
  • Our experienced IP prosecution lawyers take the worry out of meeting IP examiners – they do it for you.
  • Meeting of all filing deadlines.
  • Advice on security during the filing process.
  • Management of foreign filings and secrecy orders.
  • Simultaneous prosecution for multiple inventions.

I’ve been very pleased with AIPEX ; the AIPEX team has been able to get some traction on a few cases that I’ve had languishing in the EP. Legal expertise has been very good, technical expertise is good and improving. I’ve been having them prepare more and more substantive responses and fewer ‘receiving agent’ responses where I have US counsel just tell them how to respond. I feel like I’m getting better results having AIPEX handle the case
