We are excited to announce that RWS inovia is #1 in the United States for the sixth consecutive year by Managing Intellectual Property magazine’s annual ranking of the top Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) firms. RWS inovia handled the deadlines of 1,419 PCTs.
Now in its eighth year, Managing IP’s list of law firms instructing the foreign filing of the most PCT patent applications is based on details in WIPO. To complete the tables, PCT applications with a priority date between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014 were extracted. These correspond to applications set to enter the national stage between January 1 and December 31 of this year.
Managing IP’s top PCT firms list is a crucial benchmark of firms’ activities in the patent market, especially as PCT applications are assuming a greater role in IP owner’s strategies. The survey is a go-to tool for law firms seeking a reliable resource for identifying potential attorney firms around the world with whom they can exchange patent work.
In addition to providing comprehensive technology to simplify the foreign filing process and reduce costs, RWS inovia has a global network of agents in over 130 countries. As in previous years, RWS inovia’s foreign agents also ranked among the top filers in their markets in the survey and we are proud to be global leaders with our distinguished colleagues.
