A European patent provides a single patent which can protect your invention across the whole of the EU market.

Our European patent attorneys are all highly qualified with engineering and science backgrounds, and are able to write, file, prosecute and validate European Patents under the European Patent Convention ( EPC ). When granted, a European patent gives protection in the European designated states chosen by the applicant. This is an effective way of obtaining protection for an invention in a number of European States.

For European patent applications, unlike many patent attorney firms, Albright IP uses a secure and immediate online filing system. This online filing system also provides discounted official fees, and we are proud to pass on these cost-savings in full to our clients.

During examination and following grant of your European patent, we can also provide very cost-effective payment of European and national patent renewal fees.

Please contact one of our European patent attorneys using the Enquiry Form on the left for further no obligation free advice.
