In the results of an annual global survey released by Managing Intellectual Property at the end of last year, Madderns was again listed in the Top 10 filers of International (PCT) patent applications among Australian IP services firms.
Commenting on our achievement, Managing Partner Tom Melville said that “This is a very significant result. It’s great to see our efforts to provide leading services across a broad range of technologies reflected in our strong filing numbers”. Included among the 50 PCTs filed by Madderns during the surveyed period, are applications directed to inventions in the fields of automotive technology, biotechnology, biodiesel production, building and construction, computing, defence technology, electronic and electrical engineering, forensics, food sciences and technology, materials science, medical devices, medical diagnostics, mineral processing, pharmaceuticals, reproductive science and sports technology. “Madderns prides itself on excellence and having the expertise to match our client’s varied needs”, Tom added.
International patent applications are a very popular way to simultaneously seek patent protection for an invention in over 150 countries. More information on the system can be found at www.wipo.int/pct/en/.
