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