IP Attaché Program

IP Policy and International Affairs: IP Attaché Program

The Intellectual Property (IP) Attaché Program advocates internationally to improve IP systems and assists U.S. stakeholders—such as businesses, legal representatives, and rights holders—with a view to fostering innovation and creativity. The IP attachés, located in posts around the world, provide assistance in all areas of IP to U.S. rights holders. This includes entering new foreign markets, resolving issues related to obtaining IP rights in foreign jurisdictions, and helping address IP enforcement challenges abroad.
