international filing services

Obtaining worldwide patent coverage is a complex, expensive undertaking which can take years and involve an army of patent service providers. We have developed the industry’s leading set of best practices associated with international patent filing for large companies. Our international filing platform was designed with an eye towards providing quality, limiting risk, catering to the specific needs of large corporate IP departments and, most importantly, delivering savings that can actually be verified after each filing takes place. This simply is not true for other “filing companies” and this is why large corporate filers use our platform.  Our platform efficiently manages all documentation, translations, filings, and costs.

Independent of process efficiencies or other ‘internal’ cost savings, our large corporate filers typically experience 30%-60%+ net savings and are provided total transparency into the international filing process. Our proprietary IT system (with patents pending) provides cost savings through efficiency and automation. Implementation of our process is seamless and can be achieved in less than half a day; moreover, our platform does not impact patent quality and does not interfere with patent prosecution by your agents.

Exceptional growth makes ITIP the world’s largest international patent filing company. ITIP, a member of Questel Group, has been elected as the leader in IP cost management and international patent filing by the Fortune® Global 500.

Questel invest in ITIP and becomes a leader in international filing.  With a unique cost management solution, ITIP propose a unique software approach to big saving in prosecution costs.
