Embros IP takes responsibility for managing all or part of the patent portfolios of a company or a law firm's clients, with timely payment of the patent annuities required to keep them in force. We validate the patent data and upload it into our database. We maintain a current copy of each portfolio as it changes over time. According to mutually agreed processes, we commit to prompt payment of the annuities and confirm they have been applied. You receive regular payment reminders for your annuities, four months before the due date, containing the information needed to decide whether to maintain your rights. Other reminder dates can be set on request. Reminders can be customized and grouped by patent family, country and/or by patent owner. We offer separate reminders for each of your internal cost centers. Our fee depends on the number of patent annuity payments we maintain on your behalf and on the payment method you choose. It includes all necessary services, regardless of the official fee amount or age of the patent. You can check the status of your patents online where you can download current portfolio reports and more. Of course our team is always pleased to help to be certain you are well-informed. Upon request, we can take over all patent responsibilities starting with registration, patent management and archiving - securely and efficiently. Whether you opt for a fully outsourced solution, or just want to optimize your in-house patent management, we will tailor our service to your particular needs.
