US Filings by Foreign Investors

Foreign inventors place trust in Altera Law Group as a team of patent professionals who will expend the effort to translate an invention into a legal document that will pass muster in United States Patent Office proceedings.

Many times a foreign application is written in a manner to maximize the effective prosecution of the application in the foreign patent office and not the US. This process can create added expenses for foreign inventors.

When US filings are not routine, the additional expense conforming to US practice is often justifiable. However, as US filings become routine events, then certain changes can make the US filings more cost effective. This approach works best when the foreign prosecution firm and Altera Law Group collaborate on the patents.
