Torrey Pines Law Group represents foreign law firms and foreign corporations with national phase entry into the United States, either through patent applications filed under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) or through direct national applications filed under the Paris Convention.
Before filing a US national phase application in the US Patent & Trademark Office, our patent attorneys and patent agents will thoroughly review the application with respect to claim drafting strategy and appropriate amendments to the specification to make sure the application complies with the most recent US laws, regulations, and USPTO Guidance.

To avoid surprises, the firm offers flat fees to our international clientele for national phase entry. Please contact us for a listing of our updated Standard Firm Charges.
