Our law firm advises clients on the complexity of all aspects of patent prosecution and litigation. We have experience in drafting applications and enforcing patents and we handle every aspect of patent law.

Greek Patents

Greek patents are granted by the Greek Patent Office (Hellenic Industrial Property Organisation - OBI) to the applicant for an invention which is new, involves an inventive step and is capable of industrial application. The invention may be a product, a product manufacturing method or an industrial application. A Greek patent entitles its holder to the exclusive right to exploit the protected invention in Greece. International protection is provided for 12 months from the filing date (priority date).

Validation Of European Patents In Greece

The validation of a European patent must be effected within three (3) months from the date of the grant of the European patent. All documents, including the translation of the document B1, must be filed within this three-month term. No extension is granted by the Greek Patent Office. The official fee is 350 Euro.

PCT

Greece has been a Contracting State of the Patent Cooperation Treaty since 1990. We have handled numerous PCT applications for both domestic and international clients.
