1.4 List of professional representatives; legal practitioners

Professional representation of natural or legal persons or companies equivalent to legal persons may only be undertaken by professional representatives whose names appear on a list maintained for this purpose by the EPO. However, professional representation may also be undertaken in the same way as by a professional representative by any legal practitioner qualified in one of the Contracting States and having his place of business within such State, to the extent that he is entitled, within the said State, to act as a professional representative in patent matters.
