FAQs About Intellectual Property Lawyers

What Do Intellectual Property Lawyers Protect?

IP attorneys protect intellectual property like patents, trademarks, and copyrights (which include inventions and creative works), enforcing the right for creators to sue for infringement and contest if necessary.

Where Do Most IP Lawyers Work?

IP lawyers are usually employed by law firms in a specialized IP law department. However, they also work in post-secondary institutions, for government agencies (e.g., the USPTO), or in corporations.

Is An IP Attorney The Same As A Patent Attorney?
