Corporate/Commercial Law Practices with Virtual Patent/Trademark Agents

A Canadian law practice, small or large, with corporate commercial lawyers may not have the resources to have its own in-house patent and/or trademark agent(s).  This is where a virtual Patent and Trademark Agent firm can assist such a law firm.

A Patent and Trademark Agent firm that specializes in acquiring patents and trademarks in Canada and abroad is in a good position to support your law firm in servicing the intellectual property needs of your corporate and commercial clients.  A virtual patent or trademark agent can be contracted by the firm on a file by file basis to provide services as a member of the firm’s legal team.  This is a winning solution where the legal firm’s  clients  obtain the value added of a patent agent without the legal firm having the overhead costs associated with creating and maintaining a full time patent agent on staff.

A virtual patent or trademark agent can take on many different roles with a legal firm.  The virtual agent can be an extension of the legal firm’s corporate and commercial practice by providing patent drafting and prosecution skills at fixed rates to the firm as well as services of developing patent evaluation processes that root out inventions, consider their importance to the client’s business and rate the inventions for filing in accordance with the policy and market interests of the client’s business.

Our firm members have several years of in-house corporate patent and trademark agent/engineer experience.  We prefer to think of ourselves as team members that work with our partners; meeting, facilitating, and exceeding their needs and expectations.

In partnering, we customize our relationship with each partner so that we seamlessly and effectively integrate with the partner’s needs. Simply put, we strive to provide the service level you require in a working relationship that adds value to your firm’s practice as well as the firm’s clients.

This is our view of the role of how a virtual Patent and Trademark Agent Firm can work as an extension of your corporate and commercial law practice. If you think it would of interest to you to leverage our experience in your business, we are here to explore the virtual agent role with you.
