PCT National Phase Entry

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 over 150 contracting states. This is known as entering the national phase.

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.
