Preparing a patent application is a complicated process. The application must meet particular requirements of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Only an inventor or an attorney registered and and approved to practice before the USPTO is able to prepare and submit a patent application on behalf of an inventor. The USPTO requires that an attorney have knowledge of patent laws and be well versed in the rules, practice and procedures in addition to having scientific or technical knowledge of the issues involved in the invention submitted by the the attorney for a patent.
The USPTO allows inventors to prepare and file their own patent applications and represent themselves in proceedings. Although a patent may be obtained by an inventor without representation by a patent attorney, there is no assurance that the patent obtained would provide adequate protection of the particular invention.
