Services
We provide our clients with a comprehensive industrial rights protection service, which means that our clients only need to be in contact with us in the course of the industrial rights protection procedures. We represent them before the authorities (Hungarian Patent Office, courts, foreign authorities), in applications, and, if necessary, with respect to adverse parties. Our clients only need to correspond with us, and they can also settle their payment obligations through us. In the course of proceeding in their cases our clients are always represented by the same patent attorney.

Between the Office and the client there is a contractual relationship, which is certified by the contract signed by the client. In this contract the client states the task it assigns the Office and the patent attorney it appoints to proceed in its case.

If a client commissions the office for representation before the authorities (which happens in the majority of the cases), the client must also sign a power of attorney, with which our Office can prove before the authorities that it is entitled to represent the client. (The power of attorney form can be downloaded.)

Below you can read descriptions of our most typical services.
