Working at the interface between technology and law
Patent attorneys work between technology and science on the one hand and law on the other hand. In the interest of their clients, they thus unite the thinking and views of technicians and scientists on the one hand and of lawyers on the other hand.
The interdisciplinarity of intellectual property law therefore requires both a profound technical or scientific qualification as well as legal training covering the entire field of intellectual property law. This dual qualification of the patent attorney is not only a formal requirement for admission to the profession, but also a necessary condition for understanding as well as representing and enforcing the interests of the clients.
