You will require this registration if you intend to practise as a patent attorney. Registration as a patent or trade marks attorney allows practitioners to undertake the full range of functions available under the legislation.
Registration is compulsory for patent attorneys. Any person can practise in trade marks matters, but the title of trade marks attorneys and trade marks agents are reserved for registered practitioners.
Registration allows clients to claim a right of privilege for communications with their attorneys.
