Document Preparation & Filing

Let Cardinal assist in your E-filing and document preparation services, either as part of a filing package agreement, or as an ‘as-needed’ service. A team of qualified paralegals will support you in preparation and filing of domestic (U.S.) and PCT applications. Included in this service is translation and formal drawing coordination, drafting of procedural documents, and document formatting reviews. In addition, we provide instruction letters and source documents to your overseas associates, streamlining your foreign workflow.

We maintain a network of vendor firms for filings, preparation, and legal counsel. Cardinal can facilitate and coordinate foreign filings via our associates, from both communication and docket standpoints. Although costs per filing vary with country-specific filing fees and exchange rates, we do our best to ensure the lowest possible costs for our clients.

Our staff is prepared to promptly and accurately file your US or PCT patent applications.

IDS preparation can include collection of references from your outside counsel, in-house attorneys, or inventors.
