Patent agent

Patent agents represent clients in proceedings that refer to the acquisition, maintenance and other requirements regarding the rights in this field. Patent agents also represent clients before courts and other state authorities if they meet the conditions stipulated by regulations that regulate representation before courts and other state authorities. The authorising authority authorises the agent for all or only certain procedural steps before the Slovenian Intellectual Property Office (hereinafter referred to as ‘Office’).

Prior to commencing the activity of a patent agent, patent agents must pass professional examination for patent agents at the Office and be entered in the register of patent agents.
