Even though everyone could theoretically draft their own patent application, we believe that this is not advisable. Patent applications are very technical and, given the costs that they involve as well as the importance of a careful preparation, we encourage you to seek advice from a patent attorney or patent agent.

The Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) can assist you in finding such a specialist. To find the nearest EEN branch, please click here. You may also find lists of authorised patent attorneys in many National Patent Offices and at the European Patent Office.
