Question: Do I need a patent lawyer?Answer:
A patent lawyer can help you protect your invention in three main ways. Firstly, a patent lawyer can help you identify what is patentable. Secondly, a lawyer can help to register your patent. They can also ensure your patent rights are protected in your contractual dealings with other parties, and they can take steps to enforce your rights should they be infringed. Lastly, they can help you licence your patent rights to a third party through a licence agreement.
