Journal of Intellectual Property Association of Japan Vol.6 No.2 p.4-10(2010-2-20)

This article demonstrates the role of patent attorneys in devising international IP strategies at various levels. Due to their technical and legal education and training, patent attorneys are enabled in a unique way to effectively advise and represent clients in the field of patent drafting, prosecution, defense and litigation. Patent law is a very special field of its own. Both the technological issues and the legal issues of patent law are often times of a highly complex nature, particularly in view of the fact that the legal systems throughout the world are anything but really harmonized. A lot of know-how and experience is therefore needed and provided by patent attorneys to cope with these challenges on a global scale.
