Drive Robust Data Integrity

Checking our clients' IP renewal data is an integral part of the solution, as standard.  These proactive checks set us apart from other providers, giving you increased guidance and confidence, in the quality and accuracy of your IP data, in manageable, digital processes to shore up/ensure “nothing falls through the cracks”.

Easy Renewing

Clients can choose how and when to instruct their renewals. Flexibility to make decisions how and when you want. You can bulk renew, and renew by group/family/time period/manager giving you a practical approach for dealing with your upcoming renewals.

Practical Invoicing

Reconciling invoices becomes effortless with concise breakdowns of reference and case fees, further facilitated by the availability of PDF and LEDES format options for enhanced processing.


The Astria-Sophia integration empowers your office to decide which Sophia IP records, during their life cycle, need to be tracked and instructed on with respect to IP renewals and annuities.  All cases mapped from Sophia and received into Astria undergo a data check for accuracy against the Patent & Trademark Office (PTO), as standard.  Any data queries identified by the Astria solution are synchronized directly to the IP record in Sophia for resolution.
