JMBM IP Update: Recent Changes to Singapore Patent Law is Complicated, Frustrating

Recent changes to Singapore patent law have created what some have called the “most complicated patent timelines of any country in the world.” However, in addition to the amended calendar, substantive requirements have also been introduced which put tremendous onus on the applicant to ensure that the patent is valid and all procedural requirements are met. If any mistake is made in this process, the patent may be revoked or invalidated.

If your company is considering or is already seeking patent protection in Singapore, we recommend having us reevaluate the applications in light of the updated patent law.
