Well trained paralegals play an important role in the patent and trademark process – from managing the specialist IP administration, to preparing documentation and corresponding with Patent and Trademark Offices. With experienced paralegal support, an attorney can be freed up to concentrate on more critical IP matters.
Paralegals perform functions to assist attorneys in filing and maintaining patents. These functions include: preparing for filing and filing drafted patent applications, monitoring the docket and sending reminders of upcoming due dates, maintaining file histories, handling PTO correspondence, client reporting, managing global filing requests and coordinating associate correspondence.
All Global IP paralegals are university graduates and many have advanced degrees, including law degrees. Clients who work with Global IP enjoy the benefits of highly-qualified and scalable paralegal staff.
