What are the characteristics of a good patent attorney?

A good patent attorney must be able to understand complex inventions, and provide clients with suitable strategies for protecting those inventions. In practice, patent clients range from sophisticated corporate clients who have a good understanding of the patent system, to first time inventors with little awareness of the patent and trade mark system.

A good patent attorney should understand a particular client’s business objectives and provide their advice in a way that is clear and concise to the client. A good patent attorney must have excellent technical, analytical and communication skills.
