PCT National Stage Application in Nigeria
One of Aspire Solicitor’s greatest strength is in helping clients with patents. We are particularly experienced in helping companies achieve their patenting objectives in a way that allows them to budget their expenditures to scale with the growth of their business.
We provide comprehensive patent services in Nigeria as well as direct filing and prosecution services.
Obtaining Patents in Nigeria
Patenting is a complex process. We understand that and proactively counsel our clients on the status and management of their applications at every step of the process to help them make informed filing and prosecution decisions and budget the associated costs.
Drafting and Filing a Patent Application in Nigeria
If it looks like patent protection can be obtained or patent protection is pursued without conducting an initial search, the next step is that we draft a patent application for the proposed invention. If a patentability assessment has been conducted the prior art references uncovered during the patent search will help us draft claims that could receive early allowance from the patent office.
Once a patent application is prepared and approved by the inventors, most applicants will choose either to file it in Nigeria or to pursue a Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) patent application.
We file Nigerian patent applications directly with the Nigerian Industrial Property Office as your patent agent, and also arrange and supervise the filing and prosecution of patent applications in foreign jurisdictions through our network of foreign patent attorneys.
PCT National Stage Application in Nigeria | Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) Applications in Nigeria
If there is interest in potentially obtaining patent protection across several jurisdictions, it often makes sense to file the initial regular patent application as a Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) application.
We typically file PCT applications for clients who ultimately wish to file patent applications in seven or more jurisdictions or at least wish to defer decisions about filing beyond the usual one year convention priority deadline to 30 months from the earliest provisional or non-provisional patent application filing. This allows you additional time to evaluate the commercial reception of the invention before determining the extent to which patent protection will be pursued around the world.
