RESCUE SERVICE IN PROSECUTION, OPPOSITION OR APPEAL
Advice and support given by PatentMind Netherlands can make the difference between grant and refusal, or between maintenance and revocation, be it in the initial prosecution, opposition or appeal phase. We focus on identifying and suporting European Patent Convention (EPC) eligibility as technical subject-matter in Information & Communications Technology (ICT). Beyond ICT technical expertise, we provide legal representation or we cooperate with your existing one. Even if refusal or revocation is imminent, we review the prosecution history and scan the application or patent for any patentable subject-matter in light of the circumstances. We argue your case and we make every effort to convince the EPO Examining Division / Opposition Division / Board of Appeal.
