Maiwald Patentanwaltsgesellschaft and the IP service provider PATEV have agreed on a cooperation in the area of in-house patent work. PATEV’s “Patent Assistant” product offers companies access to expert advice on all aspects of in-house patents. Especially SMEs often lack the resources to process inventions: invention reports get neglected, formal aspects of patent prosecution don’t get the necessary degree of attention.
PATEV’s Patent Assistant provides support tailored to each company’s particular needs:
- establishing an organizational structure for in-house patent work
- managing invention reports
- consulting regarding potential patent filings
- providing support during patent prosecution
- employee inventor compensation
- developing an IP strategy
- reporting on IP status and activities
Patent Assistant is not meant to replace the professional advice of a patent attorney.
