Patent Agents

Work Environment

Patent agents work indoors in offices, spending much of their time reading documents, researching information online as well as in print, and speaking and e-mailing with inventors, representatives from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, and other parties. Patent agents work in law firms that have intellectual property departments, corporations with legal research and development departments, and at research universities. Self-employed patent agents work from their own offices.
