The 2013 CES: Patents, Legislation Reform, and the Growing Market for Patent Attorneys and Agents Reviewed by Wysebridge

However, attorneys are also admitted to the bar of a state(s), and this this allows a patent attorney to enforce a patent in court our defend the patent holder in court. In the growing turmoil of patent litigation and exploding intellectual property markets, companies, law firms, are seeking individuals with a good amount of experience in science and technology fields who are also qualified to file, and if necessary, defend patents.

The high costs surrounding patent litigation, the need for tighter patent reform, and the ever expanding market in technology and sciences only mean that at least for now, entering and working in the realm of patents and patent litigation will be a viable, and for sure, stimulating and dyn
