Take a look around you and you'll probably see some inventions. Computers, phones, desks, lamps; sidewalks, street lights, bicycles - all these things were invented, and chances are they'll have one, two or maybe even dozens of patents associated with them.
Patent agents help innovation happen: they advise and assist inventors with the crucial steps in creating and lodging patent applications for their inventions.
They assist inventors with completing and submitting all patent-application paperwork, writing the inventor's legally enforceable claims of ownership to the invention, revising rejected patent applications, and deciding when it's best to abandon an application.
