P&TS is specialized in performing prior art searches and in obtaining and enforcing patent rights. Our staff includes specialists in technology surveys to ascertain the novelty of your inventions and a team of patent attorneys including former patent examiners at the European Patent office.
Thanks to our knowledge of the prior art and of the decision processes within the EPO, we are able when drafting the applications to anticipate the examiner's main objections and thus achieve an high rate of acceptance of the applications we drafted. The granted patents are furthermore more solid and easier to defend in opposition procedures or in litigation against possible infringers.
