Who is a Patent Agent?

A patent agent is a person authorized to interact with the patent office on behalf of his client. He can file a patent application, prosecute the patent application and appear before the patent office or appellate board on behalf of his client. In India, only a person having a science, technology or an engineering degree can become a patent agent. In order to be registered as a patent agent, a person must clear the patent agent exam conducted by the patent office. Foreign citizens are not eligible to register as patent agents in India.
