HGF’s bespoke UPC Opt-out portal has been designed and developed by HGF to assist clients when providing us with their instructions on the opt-out of their European patents and applications. The portal sits within HGF’s online client information portal, OCIS. Each client has a unique and secure login which provides access to their company patent schedule for all patent cases that are eligible for the UPC opt-out. The portal enables clients to review and submit information to HGF in order for us to file an opt-out application on our client’s behalf, creating a streamlined process. The portal also provides real-time access on the decisions you have made on your opt-out history and is accessible 24/7.
Once access is granted there is a video available to show you how to navigate and use the portal. If you would like more information please contact Tara Cooney in our UPC ready team.
