When your company decides it is time to access the Indian market, one of the greatest future markets worldwide, remember that after the patent has been granted, you need to file a so-called 'working statement' on a yearly basis.
Under the Indian Patent law, you are required to file a yearly statement on the extent to which your patented invention has been worked on a commercial scale in India. If non-worked, reasonable arguments why and suggestions as to how the patent will be worked need to be furnished with the patent office. Dennemeyer, through its network of agents, can support you with filing these working statements, so you don't need to worry about the bureaucracy.

When entrusting Dennemeyer with the filing and prosecution of your Indian patent applications, a dedicated patent attorney will be your single point of contact, even after it has been granted.
