Patents is a highly specialized and technical field of intellectual property. The in-house capabilities of our Patent Group set us apart and allow us to provide a wide range of services, from patent search, drafting, prosecution, and valuation.
Our lawyers and patent specialists have background in different fields of sciences, such as chemistry, physics, and engineering, among others. Our qualifications are further bolstered by participating in local and international courses, including the Patent Surgery Course administered by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), the South East Asian Patent Drafting Course (SEAD) organized by the International Federation of Intellectual Property Attorneys (FICPI), and the technical courses sponsored by the Japan Patent Office. As a result, our firm is one of very few that do not need to outsource work to external consultants or general litigators.
Our firm has also been recognized by numerous award-giving bodies, most notably by IAM Patent 1000, which identifies top patent practitioners in jurisdictions around the world. It ranked our firm in the Silver Band, or as one of the top patent firms in the Philippines. As a testament to our firm’s quality patent services, we are also trusted by government agencies. Our firm is among the select pool of law firms that work with the Department of Science and Technology-Technology Application and Promotion Institute (DOST-TAPI) and various constituent units of the University of the Philippines. Our lawyers have also been designated as intellectual property experts in Fairness Opinion Boards constituted by the DOST regional offices to evaluate the fairness of proposed transactions involving government-funded technologies.
