Patent protection process in Poland
Obtaining patent protection in Poland involves verifying whether your project, invention, or idea can indeed be protected by patent law. You can approach us for this purpose. We will assess whether your idea is subject to other protective rights, such as copyright or trademark registration.
Additionally, we will analyze your solution for innovation and inventive step. If the result is positive, we will ask you to specify the territorial scope for which protection should apply. You can apply for patent protection in Poland, a defined region in Europe, or even an international patent.
Subsequently, a patent description needs to be prepared, and the relevant application must be submitted to the Patent Office. It takes approximately 3 years to be granted protection in Poland, although it may take longer in certain technical fields.
With the assistance of experienced lawyers, the entire procedure is more efficient. Our law firm maintains a constant collaboration with patent attorneys and IP (intellectual property) specialists. We can help you with verification, patent research, registration on a national or European basis, and represent you in media and contentious proceedings before administrative courts and Patent Offices.
We also offer services related to transactions involving the invention (licensing, purchase, sale) and assistance in drafting legal agreements, analyses, and legal opinions.
