[ Training Patent attorneys ]
Technology and law from one source.
“Do patent attorneys really understand anything about technology? Are they not lawyers who have specialised in patent cases?” The approx. 4,000 German patent attorneys never tire of overcoming these frequently heard prejudices.
Patent attorneys are engineers and scientists with science degrees, practice in industry and three years of legal training. They are just as much familiar with the relevant field of law as with science and technology – an important prerequisite if they are to assess innovations and protect them from imitation and to set the legal wheels in motion for the success of a technical innovation, a trade mark or a design.
