If you do not have either a residence or a principal place of business in one of the member countries of the EPC, you must be represented by a European Patent Attorney throughout the application procedure, except for the initial filing of the application.
Usually, when a European patent application is made, it will claim priority from an earlier patent application for the same invention, for example an earlier UK patent application.
A company or an individual can apply for a European patent.
They will have to confirm that they own the invention to be granted a patent.
In order to claim priority, the European patent application must be filed no later than 12 months after the earlier application with certain limited exceptions.
