Simply put, a Power of Attorney (PoA) acts as a letter which gives our agents authority to act as an attorney and represent you, the client, in front of the relevant Patent Office when renewing a case. Our renewals team works hand - in - hand with internationally placed agents, in order to provide legally accurate material, which is up - to - date.
With every PoA provided, we require a signed and scanned copy. This copy is then downloaded onto the relevant client platform, available for reference if need be. For countries such as Poland and Vietnam, we also require physical copies. Our physical address details will be provided in the instance whereby, this is required.
To find where the PoA's are located on your platform, follow the steps to follow;
Log into your platform
