Ask Patents is a question and answer site for people interested in improving and participating in the patent system. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Many (pharmaceutical) companies have their own IP department employing many patent attorneys. On espacenet, which search field allows me to look for patents issued by a specific patent attorney at a specific pharmaceutical company? Usually, the PA is not the inventor, so I guess "inventor" is not where I should enter the PA.
