Renewal fees are a vital part of safeguarding intellectual property rights. Our specialist department has been managing renewal fee payments for our clients at the EPO, UKIPO, USPTO and other foreign intellectual property offices for over 20 years.


Since 2003 we have paid over 100,000 renewal fees for our clients. This wealth of experience has been key to our development of a streamlined, proprietary approach.

Our bespoke IT system delivers results

We are passionate about process at Mewburn Ellis. If we can think of a faster, more efficient way to operate, we make it happen. Over the years our IT department has developed a bespoke computer system that rigorously monitors renewal fee deadlines, issues reminders, and records payments.

At Mewburn Ellis we can pay renewal fees for our clients’ patents, designs and trade marks (including pending applications). Where possible, we do so directly to the patent office concerned, saving time and money.

If payment is being made in advance, we offer discounts. And we believe a good credit history should be recognised, so over time clients can enjoy the benefit of discounts without advance payment.
