Intellectual Property Attorney Jobs
As technology changes and advances in the 21st century, the need for intellectual laws changes according to the needs. Intellectual property laws were created to protect the creativity of a creator, whether that piece of property is a manuscript, invention or patent to protect a technological advance.

Intellectual property attorney jobs were created to protect and uphold these laws. An attorney in this field will be expected to perform all legal aspects associated with the protected property.

Also known as a patent lawyer, this attorney is tasked with defending that property and ensuring that nobody or no other advancement conflicts with that property's rights. An inventor knows the science behind his or her invention; the intellectual property attorney protects that science to make sure it isn't duplicated, stolen or otherwise infringed upon.

While an inventor may not be required to retain the services of a patent attorney, it is often advisable to do so in order to make sure patent applications are done correctly in order to complete that protective barrier for the patent or invention.

Technology today is moving faster than ever and patents are becoming more and more complicated. For example, one new smartphone device may contain many different patents in order to efficiently run that piece of technology and keep it at the front of consumers' minds. However, if the patents are not filed or researched effectively, a competitor may either assume the technology or claim it as their own, filing a lawsuit against the original inventor.

Intellectual property attorneys diligently research any associated patent and invention to protect their client. Additionally, they are required to represent their client in any associated court proceedings, whether their client is the plaintiff or the defendant in the case.

An intellectual property attorney is required to undergo the same education as a traditional lawyer. They are required to obtain a B.A. from a four-year college or university in a field of technology as recognized by the US Patent and Trademark Office. After that, they will need to earn a Juris Doctorate (J.D.) degree from a law school accredited by the American Bar Association. Attorneys in intellectual property will also be required to take the patent bar exam.

Due to the nature of advancing technology, an intellectual property attorney job is an ever-changing field. A successful lawyer in this field will be ready to change with it.
