The only difference between two Patent agent can only prosecute in Patent office where as Patent attorney can prosecute in Patent office as well as before the court of Law  

A patent attorney is an individual who (1) is a lawyer, (2) holds a university degree in an approved technical field, and (3) has passed the Patent Bar Examination. A patent agent only qualifies under items (2) and (3) above. Both patent attorneys and patent agents are registered with the PTO, and are fully authorized to prepare patent applications and obtain patents for their clients. Patent agents usually charge much less for their services.

Hi Manu,

I am Advocate Ambuj from Delhi. The basic differece b/w Patent Agent and Patent Attorney is Patent attorney can file as well as argue the case before the Court and patent office, but the Patent agent can argue before the patent office only.

 

Thanx
