What our NPE Experts can offer you

If you’ve already:

  • engaged a patent attorney;
  • had a patent specification drafted; and
  • had your application filed as through the PCT process.

We want to support you. You’ve probably heard your patent attorney speak of national phase entry and are wondering what it is. Well, it’s a largely procedural step in which you enter your application into each country where you wish to seek patent protection.

The process follows the below general timeline, in which we use commonly selected countries as examples.


While entry into each country is mostly procedural, requirements in each country are slightly different and require assistance from local intellectual property professionals. zIP can assist to wade through these procedural complexities with its network of overseas associates.

What does it cost?

We’re guessing that you’ve possibly already received an estimate of costs for national phase entry from your patent attorney, and were surprised at just expensive this step can be. Well, this is where we can step in and assist.

zIP has been established to streamline the national phase entry process and make it more convenient, efficient and affordable for you. However, don’t just take our word for it. Like the rest of our processes, it’s very simple to obtain a quote for our services.

which can then mature into granted patents. This results in your inventions having a greater
chance of international success.
