Using the most cost effective route for foreign patent filing and prosecution services

Whitaker Chalk attorneys have been serving clients in US domestic and international commercial transactions and civil disputes since 1978. The firm has long recognized the value and significance of intellectual property and has built expertise in the area of IP protection. Whitaker Chalk is appreciated statewide and nationally for their strong client-focus, talent and dedication. The US law firm turned to Dennemeyer & Associates as a partner for handling an important aspect of their clients' patent portfolio: foreign filings.

Whitaker Chalk Swindle & Schwartz PLLC attorneys have been using Dennemeyer & Associates' services, through their present and predecessor firms, for over 25 years for a wide range of legal intellectual property services such as: patent filings, PCT foreign filings, validations, international recordals/assignments for patents and trademarks, as well as Dennemeyer Group's patent annuity payment service. One of the present Whitaker Chalk attorneys used Dennemeyer to handle all the foreign filing work for the Hughes Tool Company in Houston, Texas, a major oil field supplier for decades, which was an important client of the attorney’s firm in the early 1980s. That experience extended over a 15 year period of time.

Since joining Whitaker Chalk and bringing his experience of dealing with Dennemeyer with clients of this type over many years, the present Whitaker Chalk firm has since used Dennemeyer & Associates' services for all of the major clients of the firm. One reason for trusting Dennemeyer as their reliable partner has been the dedicated assistance and responsiveness of our filing experts, who handle every case with attention to detail and responsibility. Over the years, Dennemeyer has handled over a thousand cases for Whitaker and its predecessor firms’ clients.

Charles D. Gunter, Partner at Whitaker Chalk Swindle & Schwartz PLLC added:

"Dennemeyer provides the most cost effective route we have found for foreign filing. Since we have started working with Dennemeyer, we have managed to save somewhere around 15 to 20 percent on filing and prosecution services. Additionally, we’ve benefitted from a highly reliable, timely and responsive service, as we have never missed a bar date for our clients. We appreciate the existence of a centralized filing with one full service provider handling filing worldwide and the responsiveness in dealing with tight deadlines. It has meant not having to deal with multiple law firms, reduced personnel costs and eliminating any need for additional in-house filing staff. Moreover, our processes were streamlined, and we greatly reduced the paperwork burden. I have been very happy with the services provided by Dennemeyer for many years now."
