Landon IP, in conjunction with Patent Resources Group, is excited to present a training course specifically targeting the needs of patent support professionals.

A successful patent operation is dependent on the efforts of many people. The patent attorneys and agents at the center of the process are assisted by a highly skilled and knowledgeable team of support professionals.
