Results of Managing IP’s 2013 Patent Survey

Managing Intellectual Property magazine recently published the results of its 2013 “Patent Survey,” which ranks the top firms for prosecution and contentious work in more than 80 countries. As a testament to the quality of our agent network, inovia’s agents in 46 countries were listed in the rankings (many for consecutive years), with agents in 19 countries achieving the highest possible “tier 1” rank.

“The quality of inovia’s agent network is one of the key factors in our success,” commented our founder, Justin Simpson. “When clients trust inovia with their foreign filings, they are also trusting the foreign patent firms we’ve selected. The fact that so many of our agents have been recognized in this survey confirms that the strict standards by which we choose our agents match the standards that our clients require.”

When I blogged about MIP’s 2012 Patent Survey, our agent network covered 84 countries.  Today, our network has expanded to 112 countries and we’re continuously adding new destinations to suit the needs of our growing client base.  We apply a strict criteria when selecting agents, requiring that our agents have: 1) a diverse array of specialties, 2) meticulous translation standards, 3) expertise in their jurisdiction, and 4) a commitment to client service.
