What is a USPTO Registered Patent Agent?
A USPTO Registered Patent Agent is a patent practitioner. A patent practitioner is a person who is licensed by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to represent inventors and prosecute patents. Our firm’s professional patent services agent is available online.
Disclosures to patent practitioners are covered by client controlled privilege. We ensure confidentiality of our services by doing all prior art searching, application writing, filing, and patent prosecution in-house. Newly filed applications are treated as confidential for about 18 months by patent offices around the world, but then they are published. Issued patents are public.
