Before talking about Patent Attorneys, it is important to talk about the Patent. The Patent is a right granted by the government for the invention created by the inventor and for getting a granted Patent it is important to follow prescribed Law or Rule set by the government. To do so, an invention needs to be passed through the set procedure or criteria made by the government. Sometimes, the inventor himself/herself chooses to follow the said procedure. However, in most of the cases, it is difficult for the inventor to know or understand about the complete procedure or applicable Law or Rule required for getting the granted Patent. There is no doubt that inventor is the best person to judge his/her invention but there are certain prescribed Law or Rule that have to be followed in order to minimize the probability of rejection of the filed Patent application in the examination stage.
Patent Attorneys are those professionals who hold the best possible knowledge and qualifications to deal with a Patent related matter. Patent Lawyers are well versed with the legal as well as technical understanding which enables them for meeting the set requirements of the Patent and related Laws. It is important to understand that Patent applications are not only technical document rather it is a techno-legal document which should be drafted from technical as well as legal point of view. The techno-legal document contains claim(s) which is the most important part for the enforcement of right, and it requires legal as well as technical skill in order to cover the invention in a manner that provides the best possible protection of the invention.
Basically, the role of Patent lawyers for the Patent related matter can be divided into three phases:
Patent Attorneys can help in giving the patentability opinion by conducting the Novelty or Patentability search for the invention, the search can provide a clear understanding of the invention. Based on the search report, one can take an informed decision to proceed further. Drafting, filing and maintaining of the Patent application requires a lot of money. So, it is better to have some understanding from the search report about the probability of getting the granted Patent before filing it. The Search report also helps in the drafting of the Patent application by providing clear understanding of the prior art or the state- of-the-art for claiming the invention in the best possible way so that it won’t claim the invention which is already claimed or Patented.
The word "Patent Attorneys" per se is not defined under the Law. However, it can be interpreted or used in the following two ways:
1. Registered Patent Attorneys in India are those professionals who have qualified the Patent Agent exam and have a technical degree along with a law degree;

A Patent can play a crucial role in the business decision or for making the future strategic plan, in all cases, Patent Lawyer can help in taking the informed decision from the technical and legal front which eventually may lower down the risks related to the Patent dispute.
