Patent

Although the world’s patent systems were designed for the industrial age, they have evolved and the patenting of inventions remains just as relevant today. Effective drafting, prosecution and exploitation of patents call for a sound aptitude for technology, in-depth knowledge of the applicable law and practice, and excellent communication skills.

Our team of patent professionals have the necessary technical, legal and linguistic prowess to secure and enhance the commercial value of patent protection for inventions in diverse fields of technology and business endeavour.

Our local knowledge, expertise and resources make us the natural choice for patent prosecution in Malaysia. The added value of our services has received global recognition. We have been consistently ranked in the top tier for Patent Prosecution in Malaysia in Managing Intellectual Property magazine’s annual worldwide survey of IP firms.

Malaysia | Movement Control Order

 

Dear Valued Clients, Associates and Colleagues

The Malaysian Government has announced an extension of the countrywide Movement Control Order (MCO) that will now be effective from 18 March to 14 April, 2020 inclusive. Throughout this period, all government and private offices as well as businesses shall remain closed except essential services.

The Malaysian IP Office (MyIPO) is closed for the above stated period. The online filing system remains available for at least new applications. Manual filing at MyIPO’s office is not currently possible. Any matters and deadlines that cannot be dealt with by online filing may be validly filed manually once the MCO is lifted.

Henry Goh’s response team of key professional staff are working from home. Although the team are attending to as many matters as possible in the circumstances, there are capacity constraints. We apologize that our responses may take longer than normal. The team are focused on enquiries and urgent matters such as new applications and imminent deadlines. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

At this time all instructions and communication must be sent via email, including electronic versions of critical documents (preferably in the form of colour scans). We suggest that you refrain from sending documents by mail or courier until the MCO is lifted.

We extend our best wishes to all and hope everyone stays safe and healthy. Thank you.

Warm regards

Karen Goh
Managing Director
