An informed applicant takes advice from a specialist: an industrial property lawyer. The lawyer has a professional qualification combining the necessary technical and legal expertise to advise his clients, in particular in the field of patents. He drafts the patent application based on the information received from the inventor and subsequently handles all the formalities related to the Luxembourg patent application and similar applications in other countries.
He also advises his clients regarding their global industrial property strategy.
The Office for Intellectual Property at the Ministry of the Economy is holding a register of industrial property lawyers who are authorised to act in Luxembourg as official representatives in matters related to patents. The representatives authorised by the European Patent Office are granted the title of 'European Patent Attorney'.
