Maintenance Fees

Patents, trade marks and registered designs all require periodic payments of renewal fees to keep them in force and to maintain IP rights. The maintenance of these renewals is a crucially important aspect of IP portfolio management.

FRKelly provides a renewal service for pending and granted patents, trade marks, designs and utility models. Through our investment in specialist software we are able to provide a highly dependable, personalised and cost-effective global renewals service. Our renewals services can also be customised depending on your requirements as we can offer either an automatic renewals payment service or instructional renewals payments service.

Our renewals service includes:

  • Renewals Reminder: Up to 3 reminders of upcoming renewals due, including estimates of costs involved.
  • Global Fees Payments: We can take care of all global renewal and maintenance payments.
  • FRKelly Portal: Our IP Portfolio Management Portal allows:
    • real time 24 hour access to your IP portfolio;
    • ability to produce reports on your portfolio in a secure environment;
    • access to renewal information such as registration and next renewal dates.
