Complete filing through the USPTO Electronic Filing System (EFS)
The NAIP Patent Application & Management System enables highly efficient, accurate and completely electronic filing that allows clients to obtain application numbers for both non-provisional and provisional applications within one hour of filing. Few patent law firms in the world are capable of such filing in any significant quantity or with such efficiency.
Automatic application status updates through the USPTO PAIR system
The NAIP Patent Application & Management System automatically downloads all application updates from the USPTO database at scheduled intervals to keep clients informed of an application’s most current status. This system allows NAIP to eliminate any potential delays or omissions caused by the USPTO and ensures clients can confidently handle even multiple applications easily and effectively.
2. Strategic worldwide patent partners and application services
Close partnerships with local professional patent law firms worldwide
In addition to US and Taiwan patent services, NAIP provides worldwide patent application services through partner patent agents. To provide the best option for clients, foreign patent agent partners are chosen solely on considerations of operational stability, management capability, procedure comprehensiveness and pricing, rather than if mutual business benefits exist.
