When applying for a patent attorney job it is necessary that you send your resume as well as an attaching note in the form of a cover letter to the employers. This will help you get better job opportunities and boost your career. Here I have tried to present a skeleton of a cover letter as well as an example for your reference.
Patent attorneys are the qualified professionals who can represent patent related cases in the U.S patent offices and U.S patent courts. A patent is a legal right given to the products which are original or are owned by some organization such as logs, machines, software products, hardware products, cars and any such products. When a patent is applied to certain product no other organization can release or manufacture the same type of product according to the law. A person who originally owns the right to manufacture those products can sue the other company. In this case, a patent attorney assists and presents the case in the court on behalf of the person who has the right of the product. There are also patent agents, but their work is slightly different as compared to that of patent attorneys, they work with the organization and help them apply patent rules to their products. To get employed as a patent attorney, it is necessary to pass the Patent Bar examination.
