Watch out for firms trying to obtain under false pretences undue payments

Recently, many offers encouraging to put trade marks, industrial designs, inventions or utility models in commercial registers have appeared in the Internet. Letters sent by those firms suggest a necessity to make payment to acquire protection. We would like to draw your attention to the fact that such charges are not essential for getting legal protection that is guaranteed by the Industrial Property Law, EPO or EUIPO.

Regrettably, letters which are fake decisions of Polish Patent Office, also appear. Said decisions are so well forged that an average entrepreneur is unable to distinguish them from genuine documents!

Using our Office services you can rest assured that we will handle your case comprehensively and professionally. Therefore, our clients make payments exclusively based on our invoices and we pay all official charges therefrom. In this way our clients avoid payment of undue and unnecessary charges. So, it is important that the Office serving you should be your proxy in the proceedings before Polish Patent Office, EUIPO and WIPO. It is also important that your proxy should pay, on your behalf, any and all official charges! That’s how Patent Attorney’s Office of Aneta Balwierz-Michalska operates.

We invite you to our profile on Facebook where we publish sample letters for fraudulent charges.
