    Related FAQs

    The only details you need in order to add a case to your portfolio is the European patent application number, e.g. EP1XXXXXX8.1. If you don’t have this number, you can find it on the EPO register, by providing either a description of the invention or the WIPO number.

    When you have the European patent application number, click the add case symbol on the portfolio page, and complete the rest of the process. Once added, you can see basic details such as the current status, actions available and what fees are due.

    The portfolio lists all your patent cases, providing only basic details. If you want to find out more information on a case, or carry out an action, then you achieve this by accessing the Case Overview. Click the row and a Case Overview modal will display, providing a range of tabs, information and features for you to access.

    The content and features provided in Case Overviews is dynamic, so depending on a case’s formality and how close it is to a deadline will impact what you can view and interact with.

    If you are managing a large portfolio, you want an easy way to ID and locate specific cases. We have a number of tools that allow you to do this. When you add a case to your portfolio, you have the opportunity to add a Client Reference and Description.

    These are solely for your own convenience and you can provide a value of your choice. You can add or amend these values at any time, even after adding a case. You will then be able to sort, filter or search your portfolio for any value you require by that Client Reference, or the application number.
