Depending on your tasks, it is worth paying attention to the patent agency profile.
That is, if you plan to patent inventions in the field of mechanics, medicine, software, the availability of patent experts with education in relevant fields is extremely important within the patent agency. Such specialists will make understanding of essence of your invention (object of patenting) simpler and deeper and will provide competent, comprehensive explanations to FIIP experts requests, not only from the legal standpoint, but also in the field of technology.
Availability of in-house patent attorneys.
Existence of completed tasks list - a portfolio of registered trademarks, inventions, utility models, industrial designs.
The patent agency court practice in the field of intellectual property protection.
As a rule, understanding the essence of the registered object, invention, utility model, industrial design and trademark allows to develop a strategy of patenting and further intellectual property rights protection.
Pay attention to the pricing policy of the company:

  • Too cheap options are most likely to be offered by companies that do not take responsibility for the registration process, do not communicate with ROSPATENT or charge experts' responses in a separate price list, and submit your application "as is", that is, without an expert search.
  • Too expensive options are usually due to the "brand status" or involvement of foreign representatives (the cost of such services abroad is usually several times higher)
The absence of a 100% guarantee in obtaining a patent or trademark registration, since the decision to register or not register your object lies with ROSPATENT and FIIP experts.
The patent agency can guarantee the execution of your order by specialists of a certain level, the correct documents filing for formal examination, timeliness, but not the registration itself.
Since intellectual property institute of law is developing dynamically, it may be wise to ask a specialist potentially responsible for your project, to present additional training certificates.
Note that the contract between the patent agency and your company clearly states responsibilities of the Service Provider as for running and bringing intellectual property registration application to the moment of patent or trademark certificate issuance.
Availability of a portfolio and the ability to file international applications, since it is possible that during the registration and running the project you may need to expand it to foreign countries and it would be only natural to do this with one agency.
