Licks Attorneys is committed to investigating the underlying causes and consequences of the Brazilian Patent and Trademark Office’s (INPI) backlog of patent examinations. Our firm filed 11 freedom of information (FOI) requests under the Brazilian Information Transparency Act in order to obtain access to new, undisclosed data that shed light on the backlog problem.
