The online social networking space that we operate in is highly competitive and is evolving rapidly. Great ideas can lead to enormous competitive advantages but they can also be copied very easily. We wanted a way to protect our inventions from being copied by the competition and patents seemed the most obvious mechanism. As a small business every dollar matters so we thought rather than look for a patent attorney we’d research how to submit a patent application ourselves. The world of patents proved to be a midfield and highly technical. We soon realised it would be a total false economy going it alone and hence we sought out Baxter IP. After engaging Baxter IP and working with Chris and Jon on our patent we felt totally reassured that we were doing the right thing. Because different jurisdictions have different laws regarding the patentability of software our patent was written in such a way that different parts of it would target the different jurisdictions to accommodate local laws. This is something we felt we have gained enormously by using Baxter IP. I’d highly recommend using Baxter IP to any software company that’s looking to protect their software inventions.
I contacted Baxter IP Patent Attorneys following a previous fruitless, lengthy and expensive experience with one of the large specialist IP firms in a previous business. I have now engaged Baxter IP Patent Attorneys for two projects, one simple, and one complex. In both cases Chris has demonstrated his talent for rapidly gaining a depth of subject understanding and a grasp of the important issues prior to producing and lodging highly regarded patent documents. I have no hesitation in recommending Baxter IP Patent Attorneys.
A big thanks for you help with the trademark. A lot easier and quicker than I thought… and a lot more affordable than I thought too. Again truly appreciate the help. Thanks!
We have now worked with Barry Meskin on 3 matters. 2 involved quite complex Aussie trademark applications, and the latest was an urgent UK legal dispute on trademarks/copyrights in 10 countries in Europe and Asia. Barry did a professional and thorough job on all occasions, and we got the TMs and information we needed in a timely manner at very reasonable cost. Plus – Barry is just a really good guy to work with. Highly recommended!!
Service, contact and support to date has been excellent. Attention to detail and advice from Michael Smith, our Patent Attorney at Baxter IP, has been nothing short of First Class. Thank you all.
I was a first time patent seeker. Baxter’s service and communication was first class. I found the staff helpful and patient as being a rookie in the patent application process I had many questions. Baxter IP also involved me in some of the text production for rebuttals and descriptions. I found this great as no one knows your idea better than you. I am now the owner of a US patent and I would recommend Baxter IP to any prospective Patent seeker. Todd Archer Director Archer Innovations.
Found your staff helpful and efficient. Would recommend you to my friends.
