GANCAYCO BALASBAS & ASSOCIATES do the whole gamut of IP work ranging from filing applications for registration [patents, utility models, industrial designs; trademarks, service marks and trade names; and copyrights] to maintenance to IP enforcement actions. We also do pre-filing advice, handle IP prosecution [administrative, civil and criminal], and we also handle matters regarding licensing, technology transfer, cancellation and renewal of registrations.
