International & Foreign Applications
Beem Law welcomes new relationships with US and international clients and attorneys. Consider the following ways we can help:
For US inventors and companies seeking to protect their patents in other countries – the key is to have vast experience and a strong network of foreign attorneys at your disposal, both of which the Beem Team provides. Prior to pursuing international patent rights, filing a prompt and timely U.S. patent application may be the best first step.
If you are pursuing a patent in countries outside the U.S., Beem Law can prepare and file an international application, claiming priority to your U.S. application through the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT). We will work with you and a well-respected network of international attorneys in all parts of the world to file foreign national patent applications. Our network of foreign associates has been developed through many years of participation in the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (AIPPI).
For foreign applicants or their attorneys pursuing patent protection in the U.S. –
- Beem Law has extensive experience and skill to work with international attorneys to prepare and file U.S. applications (as a first filing).
- If a foreign application has been filed we will work with you to prepare and file an international PCT application or U.S. national application that claims priority to another national filing.
We receive frequent inquiries from IP owners outside the United States, and we represent both US citizens and non-citizens who are referred to us by patent attorneys from other countries. We welcome you to contact your attorney, who will forward your instructions on to Beem Law to begin the patent process.
We are always ready to provide you with more information about protecting your intellectual property. For more information on International & Foreign Applications and more, please contact us at (312) 201 0011.
