Today Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S.  relaunched the Manual IP within Kluwer IP Law. Manual IP is  a powerful “how to” guide for compliance explaining the IP procedures and laws  for Intellectual Property application in 238 jurisdictions. The innovative redesign of Manual IP  allows IP professionals to quickly locate specific procedural answers.

“For IP professionals, having access to the correct information in a quick and efficient manner is crucial, and as a customer-centric organization, we are committed to delivering resources and content at the point of need,” said David Bartolone, Vice President and General Manager at Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. “The latest updates to Manual IP will expand Kluwer IP Law’s capabilities to provide an intuitive workflow solution as we continue to evolve our services to provide expert solutions with high quality content for our customers.”

Manual IP provides guidance for selected complex phases of patent and trademark applications. The editorial enhancements offer both practical guidance  and deep domain expertise to enable lawyers to locate  answers through a single source. I

One of the most important features is the comparison tool. Users can compare single or multiple issues across multiple countries. Manual IP drives  productivity, efficiency and collaboration for a wide range of IP professionals, including patent and trademark attorneys, in-house counsel, professional support lawyers, formality officers, paralegals, and more.

Kluwer IP Law is Wolters Kluwer’s flagship service dedicated to IP law by providing practical tools and expert commentary from prominent practitioners and thought leaders. The resource allows users to easily and efficiently access key sources for European Patent Attorneys, such as Visser’s Annotated European Patent Convention and PCT Practice and Strategy, in addition to research case law. Kluwer IP Law allows users to stay informed on IP news and new content added to the service through Kluwer IP Blogs and News & Content sections.

“My role is to provide precise information on IP law to assist our Patent attorneys and lawyers,” said Dr. Edward Pullicino, Professional Standards Officer at HGF in London and a user of Manual IP within Kluwer IP Law. “Our attorneys often work for clients in unfamiliar multiple jurisdictions and require information on particular points of law. Providing the correct information to them in a timely manner is critical, since incorrect information can potentially invalidate a patent during prosecution or have costly knock-on effects during patent litigation. This is where Manual IP is so useful because it enables me to find information on points of law in every single country in the world at the click of a button.”
