How we work
Our clients perceive us not as a traditional patent agency but as a technologically knowledgeable sparring partner, whose focus is not on patents as such but on increasing the value of their business via patenting.
We eliminate unnecessary complexity, ensure constant progress and make patenting easier by always making clear recommendations and using our international experience when uncovering risks and preparing patent applications in Europe, the United States and Japan - with a focus on the BRIC countries.
A patent application's route through the patent system generates many patent authority communications requiring some kind of action. At Hoffmann Dragsted, we believe that this should not be a burden to our clients. We believe in simplicity and therefore communicate in a clear and precise language and take on the responsibility for ensuring progress through the entire process in order to make the patenting process simple and comprehensible.
We engage in continuous dialogue with all our clients - aiming at adapting our communication to their requirements. In this way, we save valuable time for our clients and relieve them of having to deal with unnecessary information.
When we work on a project for a client, we often work from the client's office for shorter or longer periods of time. In our experience, this physical presence at a client's premises provides us with a much better insight into the business and special requirements of that particular client - and hence, our basis for offering qualified and useful advice is significantly improved.
A period of working in-house at a client's premises can be arranged in various ways, and the possible agendas are many. Our presence may e.g. contribute to enhancing the awareness of patents and IPR in the company in general. The aim could also be to assist an in-house patent department during busy periods.
