To be a registered patent attorney, lawyers are required to have a technical degree or its equivalent and to pass an additional bar examination administered by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. At Austin Rapp, our attorneys are registered patent attorneys with expertise in computer science, chemistry, biochemistry, engineering, electronics, materials science, physics, and other technical fields. Our training and experience helps us present intellectual property accurately and persuasively to patent examiners, judges, juries, and (when appropriate) to our clients’ actual or potential competitors.
