KIPA handles the filing and prosecution of Swedish national patent applications. Filing the first patent application of a patent application family in Sweden offers certain advantages for clients planning to seek patent protection in multiple countries. These advantages include speedy examination, the possibility of filing English language applications, and relatively low cost. This may be a useful alternative to filing a U.S. provisional application in view of recent changes in U.S. patent law.
Patent laws and practice in the U.S. are not the same as those in other jurisdictions including Europe, Japan, China, and Korea. U.S. patent law has also recently experienced dramatic changes. Our U.S. patent agent has valuable experience that helps us provide our clients with expert advice in U.S. applications.
