Rule 5: Batch file to create economies of scale

Rule 5 of 7

If you have multiple filings due in a given month or quarter then do a batch filing to maximize efficiency and minimize costs. And don’t be afraid to ask your patent attorney for a discount if you can instruct a significant number of cases simultaneously!

The same goes for external service providers: most foreign filings and annuities providers will offer discounts for significant volumes of work.
