Why am I a patent attorney?

“One motivation for entering the patent industry is the multifaceted nature of the profession. No two days are the same. Not only do we advise our clients on the patentability of their invention, but we also present tailored filing strategies. For me, the appeal of the job lies in the interface between law and technology, continuously striving to expand the patent portfolio and achieve the best possible enforcement of intellectual property rights for our clients.”
