What We Do: Direct Filing

Over 150 years old and one of the first IP treaties, the Paris convention is still an active method of filing. Taking an application from priority to granted protection requires patent owners to understand the nuances and requirements in each jurisdiction. Choice IP makes it simple to get answers and provide instructions with a streamlined single point of contact.

Applicants choose this route for patent protection versus the PCT route when the applicant knows with certainty at the 12 month deadline in which countries they would like patent protection. Additionally, there are several countries such as Argentina and Taiwan which are not members of the PCT, so patent protection can only be obtained through direct filing.
