Between technology and law
Patent attorneys counsel and represent the inventor or the business from preparing the patent application to reporting the grant of patent.
If patent rights are to be exploited via license agreements, the patent attorney is equally qualified to represent you in these matters.
Even when it becomes necessary to advocate your ownership of trademarks or design registrations or copyrights in the case of a dispute with a competitor, you will find the patent attorneys to be specialists.
For this reason the patent attorneys must be doubly qualified: a technical degree as engineer or in the sciences, and at least three years of legal education.
