PCT National Phase Entry: Patent Filing Services

The PCT (Patent Cooperation Treaty) allows an applicant seeking IP protection in multiple countries to file a single international application, providing additional time to prepare and file in 153 contracting states. Given the complexities of national phase entry, most applicants use local agents to handle the translation and filing. But this approach has serious drawbacks: no tools or processes for cost management, excessive translation fees, and a decentralized process that makes it difficult to measure translation quality.

Since 2000, Morningside has provided a superior choice: a streamlined solution for patent translation and national phase filing that lowers costs, ensures quality, and provides greater transparency and accountability. Find out why over 1/3 of the Top 100 PCT filers in North America rely on us for their patent translation & foreign filing needs.

Quality Assurance

Ensuring quality is the most critical part of the process. Morningside’s network of native subject matter experts and in-country patent attorneys deliver uncompromising quality, from initial request to on-time delivery. Our patent linguists have 5+ years of patent translation experience, technical field expertise, and in-depth knowledge of patent law. We can also file patents via our network of top-tier foreign agents located in 150 countries.

Outside Counsel

Morningside’s patent filing services are equally cost-effective for companies that rely on outside counsel to enter the national phase. By instructing outside counsel to obtain translations from Morningside, many of our clients have dramatically lowered their filing expenses without creating additional work for their in-house patent departments. Regardless of how you currently handle foreign prosecution, we can help you achieve greater efficiency and cost savings immediately.
