Every win fuels greater efforts to strive to provide clients with success. Just as securing a patent for a client is inspiring, so is a win from the ACQ Awards. This recognition is much appreciated and will motivate efforts to continue to provide first rate client service and achieve a competitive advantage for clients in their respective patent landscape. PatentAxis Inc. is a Canadian patent services firm located in Toronto, specializing in patent filing and prosecution. For local clients, patent portfolios and international filing strategies are managed and executed. International clients are represented for Canadian patent prosecution to achieve grant of a Canadian patent. A high premium is placed on client relationships. Whether the client is a local start-up or a large international law firm, PatentAxis Inc. is committed to clear communication, transparent billing and steadfast pursuit of patent protection. Accessibility and prompt and clear responses to clients wishing to discuss strategy or query a patent practice is a cornerstone of PatentAxis Inc.’s service model. Discussion and questions are encouraged by a policy of not charging for calls that are less than 30 minutes. Every attempt is made to have calls directed to and answered by a relevant patent professional during business hours. Open communication channels provide clients with opportunities to make informed decisions when considering multiple parallel options that can arise during filing and prosecution and ultimately obtain patents that are better correlated with client goals.
Billing models can be either based on hourly rates or fixed fees. Historically, a majority of clients provided with both options have chosen fixed fees. Responding to client demand a fixed fee structure has been developed for full Canadian prosecution from filing to grant. PatentAxis Inc. is dedicated to explicit and plain billing, so that invoices are aligned with expectations. A founding principle of PatentAxis Inc. is to treat every client as a premium client, with an emphasis on client communications and client satisfaction. Regardless of the size of the client a concerted effort is made to provide clear and practical advice at each decision point, and whenever relevant set out options with benefits and risks of each option. It is a distinct honour to receive this ACQ Law Award. These awards are useful indicators of being on the right track, and provide a validation from existing clients without having to impose on these same clients with requests to answer surveys or submit testimonials. PatentAxis Inc., is thrilled to celebrate this award as a reflection of a roster of trusted client relationships and sends heartfelt thanks to those who took time out of their schedules to cast favourable votes and make this win possible.
