Number of patent attorneys in US
How many patent attorneys are there in US?
There are many controversies when it comes to the number of patent attorneys in the United States of America. USPTO records identified about 41,800 active registered patent practitioners. The number is obviously wrong. Current statistics show that in the United States of America there are approximately 26000 active patent attorneys. Keep in mind that many folks have retired from the practice of patent law or even passed-away in the many years since the USPTO last conducted a survey of active practitioners.
