Utility model protection

In order to obtain the protection, it is necessary to initiate proceedings with the Patent Office, in which we help our clients.

If the product proves to be innovative, then we proceed to develop an application, a description of the utility model and other documents required by law. We represent our clients before the competent authorities without using intermediaries.
