Maintenance of a patent

A recurring fee must be paid to the granting (authority) body for virtually every patent right that is applied for or granted. This payment, known as the annual fee or maintenance fee, must be paid on time.

Arnold & Siedsma can help you to carry out this assessment, in which the scope of protection and commercial benefit are weighed up against the payment of the official fee concerned.
