This website offers our services to patent attorneys with clients wishing to file so-called Euro-PCT applications, following International, or PCT, Patent Applications. A Euro-PCT application is the European Regional phase of a PCT application.

Our Euro-PCT filing service is offered to patent attorneys/agents/professionals anywhere outside Europe, particularly in North America and Pacific Rims counties, such as USA, Canada, Korea, Japan, China and Australia. Even if you are from elsewhere we would be delighted to help with your clients' Euro-PCT applications.

Euro-PCT applications are filed at the European Patent Office.  They are not cheap because of heavy EPO fees.  However, since the London Agreement (by which national translations of the description are no longer required for many countries) the cost on grant is now much reduced.  Applications can be in English; French and German language claims are required on grant. 

If after looking at the costs your clients are put off, please go to "National Phase Alternatives" on the menu.
