What We Do: PCT National Phase Filing

Established in the 70s, the PCT has become the preferred method for initial international patent filing. Patent owners are provided with additional time to better understand market conditions before being required to commit to the often long and confusing international filing process. The PCT affords the client patent protection in the contracting states for a period of thirty months from the first priority date. Once the protection provided by the PCT approaches expiration, the client must file into the individual countries where they wish to retain patent protection.

Choice IP provides a smarter way to enter the national phase. By having a single point of contact, the process becomes easy to understand, navigate and implement. Our clients are also connected with top-ranking associates in each region who can be relied upon for all future prosecution and communication.
