We are able to pay renewal fees for our clients’ patents, designs and trade marks (including pending applications). Where possible we pay fees directly to the patent office concerned enabling us to offer an efficient and low cost service. We handle this all in house and do not outsource any of the process to third parties.
The team in our in-house renewal/annuity fee payment department has over 30 years’ experience in paying renewal fees at the EPO, EUIPO, UKIPO, USPTO and other foreign intellectual property offices. Since 2003 Mewburn Ellis have paid over 150,000 renewal fees for our clients. We have developed our own dedicated computer system, which monitors renewal fee deadlines, issues reminders where appropriate and records payments made.
Our schedule service provides a convenient way for you to instruct renewal payment and also to take advantage of our discounted charges.
