>> Patent Attorney Explained

What is a patent attorney in Australia?

Australian patent attorneys are both qualified in a technical discipline (e.g., engineering or science) and Intellectual Property law. This unique combination allows Australian patent attorneys to represent their clients in respect of patent matters, such as drafting of patent specifications and applying for or obtaining patents in Australia or overseas. In addition, Australian patent attorneys are able to provide advice in respect of infringement and validity of existing patent rights in Australia. 


All communications related to Intellectual Property matters between an Australian patent attorney and their clients are privileged to the same extent as communications between solicitors and their clients.
