Becoming a Patent Agent or Technical Advisor

A patent agent is someone who has taken and passed the Patent Bar Exam administered by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Patent agents are legally licensed to represent inventors in patenting their inventions, typically including electronically preparing, filing and advocating for the inventors before the USPTO.
A technical advisor is a person hired by a law firm or corporation to provide technical assistance, typically in the patent field by assisting a patent attorney or patent agent in the process of securing patent rights for inventors. Typically, a technical advisor is often a law student or in training to become a patent agent.
