Attorney registration

When applying to become a patent or trade mark attorney, or a company wishing to register as an incorporated patent or trade marks attorney, there are requirements you must meet.

How to register

Making a complaint

If you have a grievance with an attorney, you should first attempt to settle the issue directly with the attorney concerned.

If this fails, see further on what options are available to you.
