New Issue When Choosing a Patent Attorney

The New York Times reported, "New Law Creates Demand for Patent Specialists."  The America Invents Act, which was enacted on September 16, 2011, has indeed changed the rights of every inventor, patent applicant, and patent owner.  Every patent owner should have his or hers patent rights reviewed.  As reported in the article, the result has been a wave of hiring of patent attorneys, especially at large firms.

This leads to the question, when you deal with a huge firm who are you actually hiring to do the work?  Perhaps a newly-graduated attorney or a patent agent.

My white paper on how to hire a patent attorney provides a set of criteria that everyone should consider before hiring a patent attorney. 

Do not assume that the firm in the tallest skyscraper has the best patent attorney.
