Recording changes on Patent and Trademark Registers throughout the world

A sometimes little-known but important aspect of work consists in

  • Registering Intellectual Property rights assignment deeds;
  • Registering license agreements;
  • Registering securities on IP rights

Our experienced staff specializing in trademark and patent portfolio management and getting assignments and changes in rights registered worldwide were able, in a recent case to get 40,000 assignments and name changes registered in around 100 countries, over the last 5 years.
