A single point of contact

Barker Brettell aims to make the validations process as easy as possible for clients. A simple instruction identifying the patent and country list is sufficient to begin the process. We work with foreign attorneys and translators as appropriate and are also able to handle the new Unitary Patent (UP) validation process directly at the EPO.

We ensure a cost-efficient service at all times. The process is entirely electronic, except where official documentation is involved.

The foreign attorneys we work closely with provide us with electronic versions of the validation documents which speeds up the process and enables us to provide our clients with a final, electronic validation report (with the exception of official receipts) – in good time before the validation deadline.

Contact your usual Barker Brettell attorney or email us on info@barkerbrettell.co.uk if you would like to request a validations cost or to discuss your requirements in further detail.
