Patent Renewals

Patent Renewals need to be paid every year to keep your European patent application or granted national patent alive and enforceable.

You can pay these directly to some patent offices but quite often patent applicants delegate this to their patent attorney. Normally the patent attorney pays another company to do this for them.

All of this adds costs and a renewal fee of say 500 Euros can end up costing you 750 to 1000 Euros. Get in touch if you would like to learn how to reduce these costs. Have a read of this new case too

It is standard practice for this sort of patent renewals outsourcing to happen and legitimate, but it simply adds more costs to an already expensive activity (patenting).
