Recent CHANGES in PATENT proceedings: Payment of Official Fees

Dear Sirs,

As reported previously, the Ecuadorian official fees for patent proceedings increased in 2012 (see table below with some of the incresed fees).

In light of this situation, considering that it turns difficult for our firm to pay in advance such high amounts, from now own we shall request our clients to transfer the official fees in advance - indicating your reference and our reference for the corresponding patent case in the subject field of the bank transfer - to our bank account, namely:



COMMERZBANK AG (GERMANY)
Account name: Moeller & Co. SA
Account No. 09 785 206 00
BLZ: 500 800 00
IBAN DE06 50080000 0978520600
SWIFT: DRES DE FF
Subject: Your Ref./Our Ref.


In our reports for each case, we shall inform you about the amount to be transferred.

We hope you understand this situation and should any doubt arise, please do not hesitate to contact us atThis email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
