We are working on a number of patents that will be lodged in various countries around the world, including Russia (where we are not happy with the costs of our current agents). As we did not find an agent in Russia to work with directly, we are working through our US agents and so have two layers of cost. We wish to find a freelancer that is experienced in such work form their day job and can do this as freelance at much better rates.
Currently we need to respond to an Office Action from Patent Office of the Russian Federation and do so by the Dec 10th deadline. So not much time.
