What is an Attorney?
“Lawyer” is a general term referring to an individual who is professionally qualified to practice as a lawyer, but, in fact, within the legal profession there are a number of different types of lawyers. Most people are familiar with the terms “solicitor” and “barrister” for lawyers.
“Attorney” is the term which is used in the United Kingdom for those individuals who are specifically qualified to advise on intellectual property law and subject to external regulation.
The protected titles “Patent Attorney” and “Trade Mark Attorney” distinguish these lawyers from “patent consultants or patent advisors” and “trade mark consultants” etc., who are unlikely to have any form of professional qualification.
The field of intellectual property law has many international aspects and clients can typically range from individual inventors to major multi-national corporations. We look after all clients!
