Kolisch Hartwell works extensively with U.S. companies to obtain and enforce intellectual property rights in other countries. In addition, we work with foreign clients and attorneys to help obtain and enforce intellectual property rights in the United States.
For our U.S. clients, we provide expertise in international treaty procedures that can help to streamline the acquisition of foreign IP rights. This includes the Patent Cooperation Treaty, the Madrid Protocol, and the Hague Convention. When appropriate, we also work with a network of foreign attorneys and agents around the world, to obtain and enforce foreign IP rights for our U.S. clients.
For foreign clients and attorneys, we provide our services to obtain and enforce IP rights in the United States. In most situations, we offer predictable costs by providing U.S. patent and trademark prosecution services to foreign entities on a flat fee basis. For U.S enforcement actions, our extensive experience operating in federal courts around the country, as well as with proceedings in the International Trade Commission and U.S. Customs and Border Protection, allows us to provide superior quality enforcement services at a fraction of the cost of big name law firms based in larger cities.
