What is a Trade Mark Attorney?A trade mark attorney is a person who has specialised qualifications necessary for representing clients in obtaining trade marks and acting in all matters and procedures relating to trade mark law and practice. They are required to undertake accredited courses in order to be registered as a trade mark attorney in Australia. Registration is handled by the Professional Standards Board for Patents and Trade Marks Attorneys. They do not have to be lawyers although an in-depth understanding of Australian trade mark law is essential.
