What is a Patent Attorney?
In short, Patent Attorneys handle the protection of inventions. They are experts with academic backgrounds in their fields, be it tech, engineering or pharmaceuticals, for example, they are NOT lawyers. Patent Attorneys work with their clients’ new inventions, whether this be a new piece of software or a new technology, and investigate them in depth to establish whether the technology is indeed new and unique and therefore needs protecting.
