Tampa, January 19, 2022. Helios IP, the innovative SaaS solution for intellectual property management, today announced that its HeliosComplete IP platform will now offer access to the Manual for the Handling of Applications for Patents, Designs and Trade Marks, from Kluwer IP Law. Commonly known as The Brown Book, the guide is widely recognized as the preeminent source of global IP procedures and laws. HeliosComplete users may now access the Brown Book materials directly in line with their day-to-day docketing and IP workflows.
In announcing availability of The Brown Book, Ralph Schroeder, the founder and CEO of Helios IP, explained, “Accurate, reliable IP operations require deep understanding and knowledge of country-specific procedures. Our partnership with Wolters Kluwer allows us to provide our HeliosComplete users with the most comprehensive and detailed resource for IP procedures and laws available.”
For more than 90 years, The Brown Book has provided IP practitioners with the industry’s most detailed treatise on the filing, prosecution, and post-grant procedures for patents, trademarks, and designs. Covering 235+ jurisdictions, compiled and edited by over 1,980 expert authors, The Brown Book enables users to quickly access the information needed to make important IP practice decisions.
The new Helios IP offering has been uniquely tailored to support paralegals and non-attorney IP specialists with procedures related to global filing, prosecution docketing, formality requirements, and renewals. It is an ideal solution for small and mid-sized law firms and companies who do not require a separate Kluwer IP Law subscription.
“Working with Helios IP to provide a special docketing-oriented content solution is aligned with our goal of making The Brown Book’s industry-leading content more accessible and relevant to non-attorney users,” said David Bartolone, Vice President and General Manager, Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. “By embedding relevant parts of The Brown Book in the HeliosComplete system, users are able to quickly answer procedural questions that arise in the course of their work activities.”
The Brown Book content is immediately available through a HeliosComplete add-on subscription. New or existing customers may contact their Helios IP representative or email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional details.
