European Patent Application

Aug 10, 2017

Stuchlíková & Partners provides in cooperation with leading patent attorneys comprehensive legal advice for preparing and filing European patent applications and representation before the European Patent Office (EPO).

The legal services include advice on selection of an appropriate strategy for patent protection of inventions in the Czech Republic and abroad.

During preparation of the patent application, it should be kept in mind that a patent may only be granted for an invention that is completely new worldwide. Any disclosure of the invention prior to filing the application could prevent the invention from being patented. Hence, the invention should not be disclosed by introducing products or services to the market or any publication of articles, advertisement, presentations, trade fairs, web pages, or discussion forums.

Thorough preparation of the patent application is essential since the possibilities for changing an application are limited during the application process, and no missing information may be added to the application.
