Perhaps because so many of our clients are based outside the U.S., Slater Matsil cultivates relationships with firms in countries throughout the world. Firms outside the U.S. routinely rely on us for all IP matters related to U.S. law.
These clients are well-versed in their local laws and appreciate the importance of having an exemplary U.S. professional handle their client’s IP issues. We, in turn, rely upon those firms to assist our U.S. based clients when seeking IP counsel elsewhere.
We work with our international partners to file and prosecute U.S. patent applications at the U.S. Patent Office, based upon innovations originating outside the U.S. Our international clients also rely upon us for numerous and varied non-prosecution matters including advice, post grant proceedings, licensing, and litigation. We are the first firm of choice for many of our law firm clients based outside the U.S. who have come to appreciate our services on all issues relating to U.S. law.
Among our various professionals, Slater Matsil is conversant in many of the major languages of the world. Having professionals who are multilingual increases the possibility that we can understand and discuss your clients’ needs in their native language, which we have found to be helpful in litigation and licensing, and even during patent preparation and prosecution.
