Match-Tetra Team

Match-Tetra's team of intellectual property managers and information technology specialists has experience in intellectual property offices around the world, in the activities of the World Intellectual Property Organization, and in patent and trade mark law offices.

The Canadian Intellectual Property Office has given us access to their technology and staff, permitting us to draw on CIPO's expertise in managing an intellectual property office as a business-like operation. CIPO staff has participated in our projects to transfer Canadian patent and trade mark technology to other countries.

Match-Tetra has advised and assisted several intellectual property offices, including Canada, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand, in many managerial and technical areas including business process re-engineering, training, and the analysis, design and implementation of administration and search systems for trade marks and patents.

Our team's experience in many jurisdictions will ensure high quality design, fast implementation with low risk, and compliance with domestic laws and international agreements. Close teamwork with your technical staff will develop state of the art technical skills and will ensure your office is self-sufficient and can support and maintain your new system.



Our trade mark search software, is used by the Canadian Intellectual Property Office, by most major trade mark agents and search houses in Canada, and by many search houses in the USA.
