Patent Attorney/Agent

When you’re thinking about going to a legal recruiter and you want the same type of work that a trademark attorney would do, but aren’t too excited about trademarks, you might wonder if you’re out of luck. It’s a good thing that you’re not since you don’t have to be a trademark lawyer. You could become a patent attorney or a patent agent depending on where you’re working, but one isn’t better than the other since both of these titles mean the same thing.

Patents differ from trademarks in that patents are for something raw that you can see and touch. Trademarks are for more rhetorical meanings that are associated with things that can be patented such as phrases that go along with it and symbols that are used for it. A patent lawyer can only deal with patents and can’t dabble into trademarks at all, so keep this in mind as you’re seeking a legal recruiter.

Also, the tasks of a patent attorney differ from that of a trademark lawyer. For the majority of the time, a patent agent would spend his or her time before the Patent Office (part of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, or USPTO). At the USPTO, the attorneys or agents will represent their clients in order to get their patent applications ready. They will also file their applications as well as prosecute their applications in order to get a patent.

Before you think about going to a recruiter such as Boston Legal Recruitments and applying, you’ll first have to pass a difficult computer-based examination, which is commonly known as the USPTO registration exam. This test is around just to prove that you have what it takes and that you have the desire to become a patent attorney. The test itself isn’t a complicated one in setup, but can be tough if you’re not ready for it.

You must pass the USPTO registration exam before you can even considered getting recruited since this examination is recognized by the bar all around the United States. Then after you have passed this exam, you can send out your curriculum vitae (or CV) to any legal recruiter and hopefully get the patent position that you desire through hard work.
