Patent

Tilleke & Gibbins handles a full range of work in relation to patents, petty patents, and designs. This includes patent and design searches, registration and prosecution of patents, petty patents, and designs throughout Southeast Asia and worldwide, recordal of changes/assignments, annuity payments, oppositions, cancellations, watch services, infringement assessments, freedom-to-operate analyses, validity and invalidity assessments, and registration of patent license agreements. 

With a rise in litigation and invalidation actions in the region—some based on issues related to translations and terminology—it is increasingly important that patent translations be of the highest accuracy and in accordance with local technical terminology and conventions. In this regard, Tilleke & Gibbins has built an in-house translation team featuring experienced translation managers and technical translators. Our technical translators include professionals with engineering (mechanical, computer, electrical, etc.), medical, biology, and pharmacy degrees. Additionally, our translation process includes careful review by translation managers and patent attorneys prior to filing.
