Practicing as an India Trademark Attorney is a lucrative job. About 1.5 million trademarks on record either as pending applications or granted trademarks in the Indian Trademark Database maintained by the Trade Mark Registry of India.

There are two ways to become an India Trademark Attorney. One being eligible by professional qualification to practice before the Trade Mark Registry of India or pasing the qualifying examination conducted for becoming a Trade Mark Agent. The Trademarks Registry conduct an examination to admit persons to become Trademark Agents entitled to practice before the Trademarks Registry. The qualification for becoming a Trademark Agent is prescribed in the Trademarks Act 1999 and the Trademark Rules 2002. In addition Advocates who are enrolled under the Advocates Act and Company Secretaries who have passed the examination conducted by the Institute of Company Secretaries of India and are licensed to practice as Company Secretary are entitled to represent their clients before the Trademarks Registry without the need for appearing in the Trademark Agent examination.

S. 145 of the Trade Marks Act 1999 provides as to who can act as a Trademark Agent and is extracted below.
S. 145. Agents .- Where, by or under this Act, any act, other than the making of an affidavit, is required to be done before the Registrar by any person, the act may, subject to the rules made in this behalf, be done instead of by that person himself, by a person duly authorized in the prescribed manner, who is -

  1. a legal practitioner, or

  2. a person registered in the prescribed manner as a trade marks agent, or

  3. a person in the sole and regular employment of the principal.

The authorization of an agent for the purpose of section 145 is to be executed in form TM-48. When there is a proper authorization, service of any document relating to the proceeding upon the agent is deemed to be service upon the applicant for trademark. The duly authorized agent is entitled to perform any act required to be done before the Registrar on behalf of his client, except the making of an affidavit. Thus it has been held that an agent of India Trademark Attorney is entitled to enter into a compromise, acting in a bona fide manner, unless there are express directions to the contrary.

148. Register of trade marks agents.- The Registrar of trade marks shall maintain a register of trade marks agents wherein shall be entered the name, address of the place of residence, address of the principal place of business, the nationality, qualifications and date of registration of every registered trade marks agent.

149. Registration of existing registered trade marks agents, code of conduct etc.- (1) Notwithstanding anything in rule 150, every person whose name has been entered in the register of trade marks agents maintained under the old law shall be deemed to be registered as a trade marks agent under these rules.

(2) The Registrar may publish in the Journal a code of conduct for registered trade marks agent authorising them to act as such.

150. Qualification for registration .- Subject to the provisions of rule 151, a person shall be qualified to be registered as a trade marks agent if he-

  1. is a citizen of India;
