What is a patent attorney

A patent attorney is an attorney who has the specialized qualifications necessary for representing clients in obtaining patents and acting in all matters and procedures relating to patent law and practice, such as filing a patent application or responding to communications from the PTO. The term is used differently in different countries, and thus may or may not require the same legal qualifications as a general legal practitioner. The title patent agent refers to a non-lawyer, while a patent lawyer is used only if the person is qualified as a lawyer. In the US, you can find patent attorneys licensed by the USPTO at
