Service Overview

 

RenewalsDesk Self-Service is a new kind of patent renewal tool. It gives you back the control over your and your clients’ renewals and by cutting out an expensive outsourced service, you can save on processing fees.

 

Renew Patents In House

 

The Self-Service tool gives you everything you need to manage and make renewals from within your company – whether you’re in-house counsel at a patent holding corporation, or an attorney or renewals team at a patent firm. The tool handles the complex calculation of due dates, payment windows, fees and fee reduction criteria. All you have to do is supply the patent.

 

 

How RenewalsDesk Helps Your Company Save Money

 

1
Self-Service is for mainstream, standard patent renewals

Our system automatically deals with the most common standard patents. If your case is something special, like an SPC, or if it’s in an obscure jurisdiction, we look at these on a case by case basis and we update you on what is needed in your specific case. Because the most common tasks are automated, we can focus on helping you with the tricky bits.

2
Fee transparency

There are no hidden fees. You’re quoted a simple processing cost per renewal and that’s all you pay on top of the currency-converted patent office fee. To be totally upfront, we show you the patent office fee in the currency in which it is paid to the patent office. Where a patent office fee is not in your native currency and a foreign exchange is required, this is charged as close to cost as we can make it and is already included in the total estimated cost quoted to you. Unlike some other renewal services, RenewalsDesk does not seek to profit by hiding huge additional fees in the foreign exchange rate used.

3
Simple pricing

Our pricing framework is as simple as our costs allow. We don’t adhere to the conventional price structure of charging you more for renewals later on in the life of the patent. Where possible, we maintain a single fee level per country that doesn’t increase over a patent’s lifetime.
