When you have an invention for which you want to get a patent, you have to be sure that your patent truly protects you and has no legal loopholes. A patent agent is someone who has comprehensive understanding and knowledge of all the rules and regulations that apply to the patenting process. A patent agent will help you through the patent application process so that you have the best chance of successfully patenting your invention. A patent agent may or may not be an attorney, but all patent agents are licensed by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, or USPTO. A patent agent who is not an attorney can assist you with the process of obtaining a patent, but cannot represent you in court.
Why Hiring a Patent Agent is a Good Idea?
Applying for a patent without the help of a patent agent can make the application process much more difficult than it needs to be. Patent laws are constantly changing and those who apply must understand the most recent requirements. If you do not understand the laws, many things can go wrong during the application process. Even when all needed forms are filled out correctly, it is common for some of them to be rejected due to some kind of error. The patent agent is someone who is experienced in dealing with these rejections and in correcting errors so that your application will be approved. It’s always wise to hire a patent agent who has expertise in the field that is related to your invention.
