- How To Talk Like A Patent Lawyer
While there are many aspects of patent law practice which only patent lawyers can handle, general practitioners and intellectual property lawyers who focus on other IP fields can nonetheless benefit from a basic knowledge of the US patent system and the patenting process, a foundation with which they can better guide their clients who say “I have this great idea that I want to patent.” This basic foundation will also aid you in supporting your clients’ needs with patent attorneys with whom you either affiliate or to whom you refer your clients when a patent specialists is required.
