The United States Patent and Trademark Office’s (USPTO’s) intellectual property (IP) attachés serve as a valuable resource in today’s globalized world. IP attachés are US diplomats with IP expertise assigned to US embassies and consulates throughout the world. Their expertise and experience facilitate their success by allowing them to address numerous topics, from broad policy issues to specific problems, on behalf of practitioners and US stakeholders. Consequently, the IP attachés can be a valuable resource—to US rights holders, practitioners, and their clients—by virtue of their unique knowledge, connections, and ability to assist US stakeholders who are facing IP-related challenges throughout the world.
