Formatted abstract
This article looks at how the work of patent and trade marks attorneys relates to the exclusive right to engage in legal practice conferred on solicitors and barristers, taking as its starting point the proposed national legal profession reforms. It argues that more needs to be done to clarify the safe harbour that attorneys enjoy from the prohibition on engaging in legal practice and that there are good reasons for framing such a safe harbour in generous terms.
